Silvia Plath explains what it's like to experience the overwhelming possibilities & opportunities in life, only to feel stuck & unable to choose which direction to take in life. The MORAL= Never be afraid to go after what you want. You can ALWAYS change your mind or start over, but avoiding making a decision will leave you watching all of life's opportunities wither away before your eyes...
“My heartbeat boomed like a dull motor in my ears.” “I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart.” “I am, I am, I am.” — Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
“I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart: I am, I am, I am.” — Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
The floor seemed comfortably solid. It was comforting to know that i had fallen and could fall no farther. ~Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
"I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, 'This is what it is to be happy.'"
Love this book!! defines part of my existence. We all at one point believe ourselves to be losing our mind. In this book we can see a transformation and the feelings that take over without understanding or constraint.
