Drinking Dragonwell Tea from a Tumbler and Reading F.Scott Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby'
'He smiled understandingly - much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced - or seemed to face - the whole eternal world for an instance, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favour. It understood you just so far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.'
This is my favourite passage from F.Scott Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby'. I read this for English in high school and I've been meaning to read it again for years now. But when you're in university, it's difficult to get the inspiration to read anything else besides your course readers and the endless PDFs.
