Varied Entry #1

"The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours." -Alan Bennett

Site to check:

Phatic: In linguistics, it is an expression whose only function is to perform a social task, as opposed to conveying information.
Example: the question "how are you?" is usually an automatic component of a social encounter. Although there are times when "how are you?" is asked in a sincere, concerned manner, needs to be pragmatically inferred from context and intonation.
