Quote of the Day (Alan Bennett, on ‘The Best Moments in Reading’)

“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.” —English actor, author, playwright and screenwriter Alan Bennett, The History Boys: A Play (2004)
