Great quotes from John Irving

She enjoyed people with glasses the way only someone who doesn’t need to wear glasses can enjoy glasses on other people — can find them “nice.”

The World According to Garp

This is my first John Irving — shouldn’t I be reading A Prayer for Owen Meany? Oh yeah, because I got this book for free at my library’s book sale. Oh well. I liked this quote because as someone who’s worn glasses since third grade, I’ve never heard this perspective. I like it. I like to think it’s true.
