Hemingway’s famous passage from A Moveable Feast:
‘There is never any ending to Paris and the memory of each person who has lived in it differs from that of any other. We always returned to it no matter who we were nor how it was changed nor with what difficulties nor what ease it could be reached. It was always worth it and we received a return for whatever we brought to it.’
In times of trouble as we turn to our loved ones and remember those lost remember also to turn to our beloved and hopeful companions: books.
