puting things where they belong.

i just realized that i no longer wish to read quotes
i'd rather read the entire book which an excerpt is from
or meet the person who said the famous quote
without context, can i really have the full meaning?
was whatever that was written or said meant to be stated without the context?
probably not.
so i think i'd like to abide by the authors wishes and do myself the favor of reading things in their entirety.
otherwise all i'm getting is a false representation of a larger body of work.
most of the time, thoughts are worth more than what a mere section of them says.
