I am really glad that I decided to read The Catcher in the Rye recently. Not only did I love that book, but for some reason hearing that J.D. Salinger died means something different to me than I think it would have.
“What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff — I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy."
