Commonplace: Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

“Suppose within every book there is another book, and within every letter on every page another volume constantly unfolding; but reduced to quintessence, held within a picture, a sign, held within a place which is no place. Suppose the human skull were to become capacious, spaces opening inside it, humming chambers like beehives.”

–Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall
