Thích Nhất Hạnh
“A real love letter is made of insight, understanding, and compassion. Otherwise it's not a love letter. A true love letter can produce a transformation in the other person, and therefore in the world. But before it produces a transformation in the other person, it has to produce a transformation within us. Some letters may take the whole of our lifetime to write.”
Thích Nhất Hạnh, Your True Home: The Everyday Wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh: 365 days of practical, powerful teachings from the beloved Zen teacher

Jorge Luis Borges
“Was it you that killed me, or did I kill you?" Abel answered. "I don't remember anymore; here we are, together, like before."

"Now I know that you have truly forgiven me," Cain said, "because forgetting is forgiving. I, too, will try to forget.”
Jorge Luis Borges

Leo Tolstoy
“And those who only know the non-platonic love have no need to talk of tragedy. In such love there can be no sort of tragedy.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Haruki Murakami
“I hurt myself deeply, though at the time I had no idea how deeply. I should have learned many things from that experience, but when I look back on it, all I gained was one single, undeniable fact. That ultimately I am a person who can do evil. I never consciously tried to hurt anyone, yet good intentions notwithstanding, when necessity demanded, I could become completely self-centred, even cruel. I was the kind of person who could, using some plausible excuse, inflict on a person I cared for a wound that would never heal.”
Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun

Charles M. Schulz
“On a beautiful day like this it would be best to stay in bed so you wouldn't get up and spoil it!”
Charles M. Schulz, The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 9: 1967-1968
