When you are young, new in all aspects, you think you know how to love, but you don't. We love at that moment with all the forces of our being concentrated in our heart, a heart that beats with restlessness, but in search of a north.
Cuando se es joven, nuevo en todos los aspectos, uno cree saber amar, pero no es así. Amamos en ese momento con todas las fuerzas de nuestro ser concentradas en nuestro corazón, un corazón que late con inquietud, pero en busca de un norte.

“Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.”
― Jeanette Winterson
