Haruki Murakami
“I've finally experienced what the poet felt. The deep sense of loss after you've met the woman you love, have made love, then said goodbye. Like you're suffocating. The same emotion hasn't changed at all in a thousand years.”
Haruki Murakami, Hombres sin mujeres

“But the movement of time seemed not to be fixed properly. The bloody weight of desire and the rusty anchor of remorse were blocking its normal flow. Time was not an arrow flying in a straight line .”
Haruki Murakami, Hombres sin mujeres

Raymond Carver

Raymond Carver, Cathedral
