Elizabeth Goudge on what to read in times of trouble QUOTES FOR WRITERS (and readers)

troubled manIn times of storm and tempest, of indecision and desolation, a book already known and loved makes better reading than something new and untried … nothing is so warming and companionable.

    Reblogged this on mira prabhu and commented:
    When my mind is troubled, I know what to do – several things in fact, but one sure way is to pick up a book that inspires me and leads me back to the truth of who I AM. I read voraciously and find many authors fascinating and skilled, but very few books leave me with the feeling that I have grown as a result of diving in…which is why I try to make my own novels rich in inner meaning…and many tell me that they re-read my work, several times – and I can’t tell you how happy that makes me, because THAT’S the reason I write…

    Thank you for reblogging and sharing your thoughts Mira. One of the books I return to time and time again is Miss Simla’s Feeling for Snow – complex characters & plot, it never fails to be absorbing.
