"I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right."
Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
What a beautiful way to describe a lifelong relationship with words. There are words that we hate to hear, and those that we love to read, and in the midst of it all we try our hardest to do right by our words. If you haven't yet read The Book Thief, I highly recommend it. It's one of those books that changes the way that you think about life and death -- one of those books that stays with you long after you've read it.
