"If you only read the books that everybody else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking." -Haruki Murakami

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking ― Haruki Murakami

I wish = possibility. I will = probability. Your choice. [Charles Dickens quote]

"The most important thing in life is to stop saying 'I wish' and start saying 'I will'. Consider nothing impossible, then treat possibilities as probabilities." ᅳ Charles Dickens, 'David Copperfield'

David Copperfield is the unforgettable story of David’s pursuit of his dream of being a successful writer. Following David from his impoverished childhood to his encounters with the memorable Uriah Heep, the beautiful Dora, and the comic Micawber, David Copperfield is believed to be the most autobiographical of Charles Dickens’s works.
