“Songs remain. They last. The right song can turn an emperor into a laughingstock, can bring down dynasties. A song can last long after the events and the people in it are dust and dreams and gone. That’s the power of songs.”
-From Neil Gaiman’s new book Anansi Boys
(Which btw I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to anyone looking for something compelling to read. After finishing it, I kept thinking I wanted to stay with those characters and find out more about them – which is always the sign of a good book. The other sign is when the book’s done and you can’t imagine starting a new one because you don’t want the previous one to leave your mind so fast. That’s how I feel now! I don’t know at what rate Gaiman writes his novels, but I have a feeling I’ll have to wait a year or two.)
