Les Misérables

I just finished reading it, and I feel the need to dedicate a post for this amazing book. It's been a while since I read a classic, and I knew I'd like this book, but I just didn't know that I'd really fall in love with it. It's so... perhaps touching is the word.

It is very sad, yet it's a beautiful kind of sadness, and a noble one. I recommend it highly!!!
And here are a couple of quotes that I liked:
"The soul helps the body, and at certain moments uplifts it. It is only bird which sustains its cage."
Page 228

"You look at a star from two motives: because its luminous and because it is impenetrable. You have at your side a softer radiance and a greater mystery: woman"
Page 319
