“For the heart, life is simple: it beats for as long as it can. Then it stops.”
Karl Ove Knausgård, Min kamp 1

“I have always had a great need for solitude. I require huge swathes of loneliness and when I do not have it, which has been the case for the last five years, my frustration can sometimes become almost panicked, or aggressive.”
Karl Ove Knausgård, My Struggle: Book 1

“All my adult life I have kept a distance from other people, it has been my way of coping, because I become so incredibly close to others in my thoughts and feelings of course, they only have to look away dismissively for a storm to break inside me.”
Karl Ove Knausgård, A Man in Love
