What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami
“I look up at the sky, wondering if I'll catch a glimpse of kindness there, but I don't. All I see are indifferent summer clouds drifting over the Pacific. And they have nothing to say to me. Clouds are always taciturn. I probably shouldn't be looking up at them. What I should be looking at is inside of <i>me</i>. Like staring down into a deep well. Can I see kindness there? No, all I see is my own nature. My own individual, stubborn, uncooperative often self-centered nature that still doubts itself--that, when troubles occur, tries to find something funny, or something nearly funny, about the situation. I've carried this character around like an old suitcase, down a long, dusty path. I'm not carrying it because I like it. The contents are too heavy, and it looks crummy, fraying in spots. I've carried it with me because there was nothing else I was supposed to carry. Still, I guess I have grown attached to it. As you might expect.”
Haruki Murakami

“What an absurd amount of energy I have been wasting all my life trying to find out how things 'really are', when all the time they weren't.”
Hugh Prather, Notes to Myself: My Struggle to Become a Person

Hugh Prather
“It's this simple: If I never try anything, I never learn anything. If I never take a risk, I stay where I am.”
Hugh Prather, I Touch the Earth, the Earth Touches Me

Hugh Prather
“By approaching my problems with "What might make things a little better?" rather than "What is the solution?" I avoid setting myself up for certain frustration. My experience has shown me that I am not going to solve anything in one stroke; at best I am only going to chip away at it.”
Hugh Prather, I Touch the Earth, the Earth Touches Me

Hugh Prather
“I sometimes react to making a mistake as if I have betrayed myself. My fear of making a mistake seems to be based on the hidden assumption that I am potentially perfect and that if I can just be very careful I will not fall from heaven. But a 'mistake' is a declaration of the way I am, a jolt to the way I intend, a reminder I am not dealing with the facts. When I have listened to my mistakes I have grown.”
Hugh Prather

Hugh Prather
“If the desire to write is not accompanied by actual writing, then the desire must be not to write.”
Hugh Prather
