I think this quote from The History Boys is very apt for both the literature that I read at university and blogging as well:

“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.”

How perfect is that? I love that moment when you come across something that speaks to you personally, whether it be in a battered old book or somebody’s blog that comes from a totally different walk of life from yourself.
