When writing about preferring to read according to whimsy, rather than according to a plan, Alan Jacobs writes,

"After all, once upon a time we chose none of our reading: it all came to us unbidden, unanticipated, unknown, and from the hand of someone who loved us." 
Beautiful. Although a small amendment: While I choose what to offer Little Leopard book-wise, he chooses what we read, and most definitely what we re-read.
