Find someone who makes you realize three things: one, that home is not a place, but a feeling. Two, that time is not measured by a clock, but by moments. And three, that heartbeats are not heard, but felt and shared.
“No, I do not have enough books. I never will. In my eyes, there is no such thing. I have made strides, every day of my life, to learn something new. The acquisition of new knowledge makes me feel as if I never truly grow old; have you not at one point, in this wild, beautiful world, seen or spoke of some ancient being with all the answers in the universe? I am not that being. I may very well never be. I may be getting on in years, but I still feel young. I still have that exuberant smile on my face when I discover something that was not previously in my head, whether it is of serious arcane study or as simplistic as a new pairing of food and wine. All knowledge is powerful. All of it. Every last minute idea, because those ideas can make someone feel truly, inexplicably, wonderfully alive.”—Kel’thenar Dreamweaver, on why his personal library isn’t large enough.
