Haruki Murakami
“It was a day like a slow-motion video of twilight. Uneventful, to put it mildly. The lead gray of the sky mixed ever so slowly with black, finally blending into night. Just another quality of melancholy. As if there were only two colors in the world, gray and black, shifting back and forth at regular intervals.”
Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance

Khaled Hosseini
“Must have been quite the culture shock, going there.”
“Yes it was.” Idris doesn’t say that the real culture shock has been in coming back.”
Khaled Hosseini, And the Mountains Echoed

Khaled Hosseini
“I now know that some people feel unhappiness the way others love: privately, intensely, and without recourse.”
Khaled Hosseini, And the Mountains Echoed

George Bernard Shaw
“Malone: Me father died of starvation in Ireland in the black 47. Maybe you've heard of it.
Violet: The Famine?
Malone: No, the starvation. When a country is full o food, and exporting it, there can be no famine.”
George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

Khaled Hosseini
“It's a funny thing... but people mostly have it backward. They think they live by what they want. But really, what guides them is what they're afraid of. What they don't want.”
Khaled Hosseini, And the Mountains Echoed
