Quote of the Week

This week’s quote is my favourite passage from “The Magus” by John Fowles. This novel is still in print and I thoroughly recommend giving it a read.

John Fowles, The Magus, favourite passage

These words have stayed with me through so many years (I first read them in the late 1970s) and still I come back to them repeatedly. I don’t think you can ask more of an author than that he plant a phrase that takes root so deeply in your mind.
