To Be Universal

One of the tenets for writing is to read, read, read, and so I have been doing just that these last couple of weeks (to the detriment of my studies).  And I thought I'd share this particular passage with you...

"I hope you'll come soon; I am longing for some one to talk to.  Mrs. Semple, to tell you the truth, gets sort of monotonous.  She never lets ideas interrupt the easy flow of her converation.  It's a funny thing about the people here.  Their world is just this single hilltop.  They are not a bit universal, if you know what I mean."
Daddy-Long-Legs, Jean Webster

Truly love this book, it's so fresh and bubbly and fun!  A definite recommend for those who like light-hearted romantic stories.
