From "Catcher in the Rye"

I read this classic a few weeks ago and by the time I got to the last page, what had dawned on me was the regret that I hadn't got around to reading this book earlier. Quite a few incidents and characterizations gave me those eerie goosebumps that I get whenever I am able to relate to the contents of a book. But JD Salinger had saved the knockout punch for the very end. The very last line of the novel (if you haven't read and got this by-heart already) goes - "Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody".
And then I set the book down in a daze.
