A girl who reads…

Mar 21, 2012 | Predicates and commas and whatnot

…a girl who reads possesses a vocabulary that can describe that amorphous discontent as a life unfulfilled—a vocabulary that parses the innate beauty of the world and makes it an accessible necessity instead of an alien wonder. A girl who reads lays claim to a vocabulary that distinguishes between the specious and soulless rhetoric of someone who cannot love her, and the inarticulate desperation of someone who loves her too much. A vocabulary, god damnit, that makes my vacuous sophistry a cheap trick.

…good grief, that escalated quickly. From You Should Date An Illiterate Girl, by Charles Warnke at Thought Catalog, which is just an excuse to post this picture.
