― Brian Selznick, The Invention of Hugo Cabret
This except above is one of my favorite quotes from literature. Like the quote, the book is succinct, choosing to use images to portray sentences if not pages of imagery & emotion.
Similarly, in an odd way, I like to keep what I bring to school to be succinct too. In a way, this thought process has been influenced by the elegant nature of the novel but in another, through my habits of biking to school. After all, it helps to not pack too much on a hilly, 12 mile round trip to and from school.
This idea that I will be sharing with you is simple, yet elegant. It's a culmination of various trials and errors and not yet perfected.
