Book Quote Corner – Lilli de Jong


“Some moments set my heart on fire, and that’s when language seems the smallest. Yet precisely these bursts of feeling make me long to write.”


― Lilli de Jong, written by  Janet Benton






One thought on “Book Quote Corner – Lilli de Jong

  1. So true…I experience this oftentimes with my girlfriend. What’s interesting is that, although my girlfriend ignites my passion and imagination, I find that I’m unable to write or create anything after being with her. It’s almost as if she “steals” or “captures” my imagination so much that I have no desire to mentally create anything else. There is nothing that I can think of that is better than her; she stumps me like that.

    Sorry to get so deep, it’s just what this quote made me think of!
