Ultimate Popsugar...: 35 - A book by an author whose first and last names start with the same letter 49 910 Dec 11, 2018 07:25AM  
Roberto Bolaño
“Reading is like thinking, like praying, like talking to a friend, like expressing your ideas, like listening to other people's ideas, like listening to music, like looking at the view, like taking a walk on the beach.”
Roberto Bolaño, 2666

Haruki Murakami
“Closing your eyes isn't going to change anything. Nothing's going to disappear just because you can't see what's going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That's the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won't make time stand still.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
