Heavy Walls

"But more than that, no unloving words were ever spoken, and everything was held up as another small piece of proof that it can be this way, it doesn't have to be that way; 

if there is no love in the world, we will make a new world, 

and we will give it heavy walls, and we will furnish it with soft red interiors, from the inside out,

 and give it a knocker that resonates like a diamond falling to a jeweler's felt so that we should never hear it. 

Love me, because love doesn't exist, 

and i have tried everything that does."

- Passage from Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer.
I'm a huge Foer fan.
His way with words has inspired and influenced my own writing.
I'm rereading his novel Everything is Illuminated and I just wanted to share my favorite passage with you.
