“Any one who falls in love is searching for the missing pieces of themselves. So anyone who’s in love gets sad when they think of their lover. It’ like stepping back inside a room you have fond memories of, one you haven’t seen in a long time. It’s just a natural feeling. You’re not the person who discovered that feeling, so don’t try to patent it, okay?”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Haruki Murakami

“It's not just that I'm dumb. Nakata's empty inside. I finally understand that. Nakata's like a library without a single book. It wasn't always like that. I used to have books inside me. For a long time I couldn't remember, but now I can. I used to be normal, just like everybody else. But something happened and I ended up like a container with nothing inside.”
Haruki Murakami

Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

“It's all a question of imagination. Our responsibility begins with the power to imagine. It's just as Yeats said: "In dreams begin responsibility. Turn this on its head and you could say that where there's no power to imagine, no responsibility can arise." [...] Just like Adolf Eichmann caught up in the twisted dreams of a man named Hitler. - Oshima”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Haruki Murakami
“Knjiga je puna života i slobode, koju zdrav razum ne može sputati. Kao džin koji mora izaći van iz boce. To mi se dopada i ne mogu se odvojiti od knjige. U tim neobičnim pričama, napisanim prije hiljadu godina, ima više života nego u svom onom mnoštvu ljudi koji vrve na stanici. Zašto je tako, ne znam. Veoma je neobično.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

“The trucker was a beefy man in his mid-forties, with arms like logs and a jutting belly, who was hauling fresh fish in a refrigerated truck.
"I hope you don't mind the fish smell," the driver said.
"Fish are one of Nakata's favorites," Nakata replied.
The driver laughed. "You're a strange one, aren't you."
"People tell me that sometimes."
"I happen to like the strange ones," the driver said. "People who look normal and live a normal life - they're the ones you have to watch out for."
"Is that so?"
"Believe me, that's how it goes. In my opinion, anyway."
"Nakata doesn't have may opinions. Though I do like eel."
"Well, that's an opinion. That you like eel."
"Eel is an opinion?"
"Sure, saying you like eel's an opinion."
Thus the two of them drove to Fujigawa.”
Hakuri Murakami

Haruki Murakami
“A dense, artistic kind of imperfection stimulates your consciousness, keeps you alert. If I listen to some utterly perfect performance of an utterly perfect piece while I'm driving, I might want to close my eyes and die right then and there. But listening to the D major, I can feel the limits of what humans are capable of-- that a certain type of perfection can only be realised through a limitless accumulation of imperfect.”
Haruki Murakami

Haruki Murakami
“Ništa se neće promijeniti ako žmirite. Ništa neće nestati samo zato što vi ne vidite šta se zbiva. Zapravo, bit će još gore kada otvorite oči.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Haruki Murakami
“I know. It's easy to forget things you don't need anymore.”

Haruki Murakami
“あなたさえ私のことをおぼえていてくれれば、ほかのすべての人に忘れられたってかまわない。”
Haruki Murakami

“She hesitates for a moment, then lowers my boxers, pulls out my rock-hard
cock, and cradles it gently in her hand. Like she's making sure of something, the
way a doctor takes a pulse. With her soft hand touching me, I feel something--a
stray thought, maybe--spring up in my crotch.”
Haruki Marukami

Haruki Murakami
“Time weighs down on you like an old, ambiguous dream. You keep on moving, trying to slip through it. But even if you go to the ends of the earth, you won't be able to escape it. Still, you have to go there—to the edge of the world. There's something you can't do unless you get there.”

Excerpt From: Haruki Murakami. “Kafka on the Shore.” iBooks.”
