Sebastian Barry
“His talk had locked me in silence, I know not why. It was not opening, easy, happy talk like my father’s, after all, 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 feel, like all of us.”
Sebastian Barry, The Secret Scripture

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

Ruth Ozeki
“Print is predictable and impersonal, conveying information in a mechanical transaction with the reader’s eye. Handwriting, by contrast, resists the eye, reveals its meaning slowly, and is as intimate as skin.”
Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being

Sebastian Barry
“The terror and hurt in my story happened because when I was young I thought others were the authors of my fortune or misfortune; I did not know that a person could hold up a wall made of imaginary bricks and mortar against the horrors and cruel, dark tricks of time that assail us, and be the author therefore of themselves.”
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
