The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
“Have you ever had that feeling—that you’d like to go to a whole different place and become a whole different self?”

Nilusha liked a quote
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
“Here's what I think, Mr. Wind-Up Bird," said May Kasahara. "Everybody's born with some different thing at the core of their existence. And that thing, whatever it is, becomes like a heat source that runs each person from the inside. I have one too, of course. Like everybody else. But sometimes it gets out of hand. It swells or shrinks inside me, and it shakes me up. What I'd really like to do is find a way to communicate that feeling to another person. But I can't seem to do it. They just don't get it. Of course, the problem could be that I'm not explaining it very well, but I think it's because they're not listening very well. They pretend to be listening, but they're not, really. So I get worked up sometimes, and I do some crazy things.”
Haruki Murakami

Nilusha and 3 other people liked Amashi Gunawardana's review of Eleanor & Park:
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
"This book deserves all the stars. Painful and beautiful at the same time. Crumbled my heart and made me cry. How am I ever going to describe Eleanor and Park? So genuine and rare. The list is endless. They represent the crude side of every person...." Read more of this review »

“Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend”
Albert Camus

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen
