A Quote by Gaston Bachelard on writing, language, reality, book, object, vision, and read

Written language must be considered as a particular psychic reality. The book is permanent; it is an object in your field of vision. It speaks to you with a monotonous authority which even its author would not have. You are fairly obliged to read what is written.

Gaston Bachelard (1884 - 1962)
