Haruki Murakami
“Music brings a warm glow to my vision, thawing mind and muscle from their endless wintering.”
Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

Haruki Murakami
“You're wrong. The mind is not like raindrops. It does not fall from the skies, it does not lose itself among other things. If you believe in me at all, then believe this: I promise you I will find it. Everything depends on this."

"I believe you," she whispers after a moment. "Please find my mind.”
Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

Haruki Murakami
“Kindness and a caring mind are two separate qualities. Kindness is manners. It is superficial custom, an acquired practice. Not so the mind. The mind is deeper, stronger, and, I believe, it is far more inconstant.”
Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

Haruki Murakami
“Unclose your mind. You are not a prisoner. You are a bird in fight, searching the skies for dreams.”
Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

“Only where there is disillusionment and depression and sorrow does happiness arise; without the despair of loss, there is no hope.”
Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World
