“You have to protect yourself from sadness. Sadness is very close to hate. Let me tell you this. This is the thing I learned. If you take in someone else’s poison – thinking you can cure them by sharing it – you will instead store it within you.”
- Michael Ondaatje (The English Patient)
I got to meet him today! I freaked out a bit. I also got a copy of the English Patient signed as well. I’m just amazed how people are able to come up with such beautiful and epic love stories. They keep me dreaming.
also, I kept thinking how much of an honor it must be to have your book turned into such a wonderful movie with Ralph Fiennes staring in it. I have a serious love for that man.
