Give Me One Reason

As ordinary as it all appears, there are times when it is beyond my imagination.

— Interpreter of Maladies
by Jhumpa Lahiri


This is my favorite line from the Interpreter of Maladies, a brilliant collection of short stories. It’s hard to pick a best line, the competition’s too great.

What lines give you a reason to reread your favorite books or sing your favorite songs (since this post’s title comes from a song by Tracy Chapman)?
