My eyes popped out when I saw this. It's like we've joined the same book club. This is one of the books I keep with me everywhere I go. Page after page scribbled with notes and underlined. I'm glad you like this book too, this is an incredible read.
"It is sad to see a young man's fondest hopes and dreams shattered when the rose-colored veil is plucked away and he sees the actions and feelings of men for what they are. But he still has the hope of replacing his old illusions with others, just as fleeting, but also just as sweet." - Lermontov
