Came across this quote online, and really love it. So many quotes out there about writing are out there because they’re considered inspiring. This one is awe inspiring. We see and do things everyday that we take for granted. Like breathing and being the amazing machine that is the human body. I’d never thought of writing or reading or books in this way before, but, now that I’ve read this quote, I always will.

“A book is an arrangement of twenty-six phonetic symbols, ten numerals, and about eight punctuation marks, and people can cast their eyes over these and envision the eruption of Mount Vesuvius or the Battle of Waterloo.ā€
ā€• Kurt Vonnegut
