"She is my world," he answered.
"Your world is too small if she is it."
"You can't criticize the size of a world. I can't help it and I can't stop it and I can't deny it."
-Wicked, Gregor Maguire
I bought this book a couple of years back and tried to read it, but didn't get very far--I just wasn't in the right mindset to absorb the concepts and language of the fantasy land of Oz. It's been sitting on my to-read shelf for quite a while, and I'm finally giving it another try, and am so glad that I have--a challenging yet enjoyable read so far.
