Ruth Ozeki
“Am I crazy?" she asked. "I feel like I am sometimes."
"Maybe," he said, rubbing her forehead. "But don't worry about it. You need to be a little bit crazy. Crazy is the price you pay for having an imagination. It's your superpower. Tapping into the dream. It's a good thing not a bad thing.”
Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being

Sebastian Barry
“To be alone, but to be pierced through with a kingly joy, now and then, as I believe I am, is a great possession indeed.”
Sebastian Barry, The Secret Scripture

Sebastian Barry
“I wanted to listen to him, but I did not want to answer now. That strange responsibility we feel towards others when they speak, to offer them the solace of any answer. Poor humans! And anyway he had not asked a question. He was merely floating there in the room, insubstantial, a living man in the midst of life, dying imperceptibly on his feet, like all of us.”
Sebastian Barry, The Secret Scripture

Ryū Murakami
“Parents, teachers, government - they all teach you how to live the dreary , deadening life of a slave, but nobody teaches you how to live normally.”
Ryū Murakami, In the Miso Soup

The Killers
“The sky is full of dreams, but you don't know how to fly.”
The Killers
