Quote: Third Wheel

If I had to choose the most powerful book of the few I read in 2015 it will have to be The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.

2015 is the year of ‘the third wheel’ through and through.

Sylvia Plath was so talented with words, look how beautifully she described being a third wheel:

“There is something demoralizing about watching two people get more and more crazy about each other, especially when you are the only extra person in the room. It’s like watching Paris from an express caboose heading in the opposite direction–every second the city gets smaller and smaller, only you feel it’s really you getting smaller and smaller and lonelier and lonelier, rushing away from all those lights and excitement at about a million miles an hour.”

― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
