"All that mankind has done, thought, gained or been: it is lying as in magic preservation in the pages of books." Thomas Carlyle
I love it. It captures perfectly that moment when everything is spinning and you just want it all (anxiety, fear, anything broken inside you) to give you a break so you can deal with it.
Yea. It doesn't have to be something big and deep even. Just that idea of everything adding up and, like you said, catching a break to deal.
Love this quote!
