Every now and then you stumble upon a few lines, so perfectly crafted, so dense, so unforgettable, that you are forced to take hold of yourself, breathe in deeply and pause…right there, amidst the pages, between the transition. You shut your eyes tightly, as if resetting, and open again, slowly, resting your sight on the first word once again. You are now ready to receive the beauty of worlds unfolding before your eyes for a second time.

This gem is from Zora Neale Hurston’s masterpiece “Their Eyes were Watching God”
