Thought of the Day
In books we never find anything but ourselves. Strangely enough, that always gives us great pleasure, and we say the author is a genius. --Thomas Mann

I found this quote interesting, since it is widely regarded that a writer's character is, in fact, himself. So are we searching for ourselves in literature--for a commonality of spirit--or are we merely self-absorbed?
