“This is why dreams can be such dangerous things: they smolder on like a fire does, and sometimes they consume us completely.”

“I had to wonder if men were so blinded by beauty that they would feel privileged to live their lives with an actual demon, so long as it was a beautiful demon.”
Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

“A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course of victory.”
Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

Arthur Golden
“I'm not sure this will make sense to you, but I felt as though I'd turned around to look in a different direction, so that I no longer faced backward toward the past, but forward toward the future. And now the question confronting me was this: What would that future be? The moment this question formed in my mind, I knew with as much certainty as I'd ever known anything that sometime during that day I would receive a sign. This was why the bearded man had opened the window in my dream. He was saying to me, "Watch for the thing that will show itself to you. Because that thing, when you find it, will be your future.”
Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha
