2.75/5

Le prime due parti del libro mi sono piaciute, ma più sono andata avanti con la lettura, più ho avuto l’impressione che il titolo “Breve storia dell’umanità” sia fuorviante. Non tanto per il “breve” quanto per la parola “storia”: più che un sag

Gore Vidal
“How marvelous books are, crossing worlds and centuries, defeating ignorance and, finally, cruel time itself.”
Gore Vidal, Julian

Haruki Murakami
“I closed my eyes and listened carefully for the descendants of Sputnik, even now circling the earth, gravity their only tie to the planet. Lonely metal souls in the unimpeded darkness of space, they meet, pass each other, and part, never to meet again. No words passing between them. No promises to keep.”
Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart

Cesare Pavese
“Leggendo non cerchiamo idee nuove, ma pensieri già da noi pensati, che acquistano sulla pagina un suggello di conferma.”
Cesare Pavese

Cesare Pavese
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends.
You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”
Cesare Pavese

Haruki Murakami
“Wasn't it better if they kept this desire to see each other hidden within them, and never actually got together? That way, there would always be hope in their hearts. That hope would be a small, yet vital flame that warmed them to their core-- a tiny flame to cup one's hands around and protect from the wind, a flame that the violent winds of reality might easily extinguish.”
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
