"I have my own medicine against loneliness reaching the degree of despair: I read. I read as one swims to shore—when reading anything, I am not there, and therefore not alone; I am somewhere else, in the book, with those people. Probably the reason I read mainly novels; I join other lives. " - Martha Gellhorn
