Haruki Murakami
“Life is so uncertain: you never know what could happen. One way to deal with that is to keep your pajamas washed.”
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84

Vincent van Gogh
“Looking at the stars always makes me dream, as simply as I dream over the black dots representing towns and villages on a map.

Why, I ask myself, shouldn’t the shining dots of the sky be as accessible as the black dots on the map of France?

Just as we take a train to get to Tarascon or Rouen, we take death to reach a star. We cannot get to a star while we are alive any more than we can take the train when we are dead. So to me it seems possible that cholera, tuberculosis and cancer are the celestial means of locomotion. Just as steamboats, buses and railways are the terrestrial means.

To die quietly of old age would be to go there on foot.”
Vincent van Gogh

Samuel Johnson
“Since every man is obliged to promote happiness and virtue, he should be careful not to mislead unwary minds, by appearing to set too high a value upon things by which no real excellence is conferred.”
Samuel Johnson

Pablo Neruda
“Everything is ceremony in the wild garden of childhood.”
Pablo Neruda

Haruki Murakami
“You like to write. It's the single most important quality for someone who wants to be a writer. But not in itself enough.”
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
