Okakura Kakuzō
“For life is an expression, our unconscious actions the constant betrayal of our innermost thought.”
Okakura Kakuzō, The Book of Tea

Yann Martel
“The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no? And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Albert Einstein
“If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
Albert Einstein

David Mitchell
“We looked at each other for the last time; nothing is as eloquent as nothing.”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

“For we live with those retrievals from childhood that coalesce and echo throughout our lives, the way shattered pieces of glass in a kaleidoscope reappear in new forms and are songlike in their refrains and rhymes, making up a single monologue. We live permanently in the recurrence of our own stories, whatever story we tell.”
Michael Ondaatje, Divisadero
