#j.d. salinger 

"Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused, frightened and even sickened by human behaviour. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled moral and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them - if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry."

The Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Sallinger (via atomos)

This is my favorite part of my favorite book.

“He was his own man, and I always found him to be grateful for his own inventions, the books that made it financially possible for him to live as he wished. There was not a false note in what he said or did. It came unforgettably entwined with his original humor. He was incapable of duplicity. That strong character of his—unique in my experience—was significant and instructive to me. Its influence did not end with his death.”— Lillian Ross on J.D. Salinger, The New Yorker, February 2, 2012
