dori quotes

There is only one way to read, which is to browse in libraries and bookshops, picking up books that attract you, reading only those, dropping them when they bore you, skipping the parts that drag-and never, never reading anything because you feel you ought, or because it is part of a trend or a movement. Remember that the book which bores you when you are twenty or thirty will open doors for you when you are forty or fifty-and vise versa. Don’t read a book out of its right time for you.
—  Doris Lessing (born on this day in 1919)

Do you know what people really want? Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who’d be kind to me. That’s what people really want, if they’re telling the truth.
—  Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook
I don’t know if we each have a destiny, or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I… I think maybe it’s both. Maybe both is happening at the same time.
