223/365 - Best Moments in a Day (Markus Zusak)


“I like that Every Page in Every Book can have a Gem on it. 

It's probably what I Love most about writing--
that Words can be used in a way 
 that's like a Child Playing in a Sandpit, 
Rearranging things, 
Swapping them around. 

They're the Best Moments in a day of writing --
 when an Image Appears
 that you didn't know would be there 
when you started work in the morning.” 

Markus Zusak 
(The Book Thief)
