The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
“This time sleep came to take me—a deep sleep that all but pulled me by the ankles to the bottom of the sea.”
Haruki Murakami
101 Secrets of the Freemasons by Barbara Karg
“For an initiate, faith is synonymous with trust and confidence, especially in God. The description of faith being “lost in sight” refers to the fact that faith isn’t seen, but can be demonstrated. Once an individual has established faith in God, he attains hope, which in this scenario represents immortality.”
Barbara Karg

Neil Gaiman
“All we have to believe with is our senses, the tools we use to perceive the world: our sight, our touch, our memory. If they lie to us, then nothing can be trusted. And even if we do not believe, then still we cannot travel in any other way than the road our senses show us; and we must walk that road to the end.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Hermann Hesse
“If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.”
Hermann Hesse, Demian. Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

Neil Gaiman
“But it was a dream, and in dreams, sometimes, you have no choices: either there are no decisions to be made, or they were made for you long before ever the dream began.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Patrick Rothfuss
“But instead, she simply walked through the walls. She didn’t know any better. Nobody had ever told her she couldn’t. Because of this, she moved through the city like some faerie creature. She walked roads no one else could see, and it made her music wild and strange and free.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

“For an initiate, faith is synonymous with trust and confidence, especially in God. The description of faith being “lost in sight” refers to the fact that faith isn’t seen, but can be demonstrated. Once an individual has established faith in God, he attains hope, which in this scenario represents immortality.”
Barbara Karg, 101 Secrets of the Freemasons: The Truth Behind the World's Most Mysterious Society
