Finished reading: The Bridge on the Drina by Ivo Andríc 📚

A fascinating tale of the long life of a bridge and the centuries of lives and change that surround it.

But the bridge still stood, the same as it had always been, with the eternal youth of a perfect conception, one of the great and good works of man, which do not know what it means to change and grow old and which, or so it seemed, do not share the fate of the transient things of this world.

(I’ll get around to putting up a few more quotes from the book, but this one is a doozy.)
