Scheherazade by Haruki Murakami
"Haruki Murakami has been on my TBR since the fall of 2011. 1Q84, specifically. Alas, I never got around to him, for one reason or another. Murakami, notoriously known for his beautiful prose and magical realism, gained fame in the United States ar..." Read more of this review »

Roberto Bolaño
“Loneliness is an aspect of natural human egotism.”
Roberto Bolaño, Antwerp

“May your cortisol levels stay low, your dopamine levels high, your oxytocin run thick and rich, your serotonin build to a lovely plateau, and your ability to watch your brain at work keep you fascinated until your last breath. I wish you well on your journey.”
David Rock, Your Brain at Work

Virginia Woolf
“Let us consider letters—how they come at breakfast, and at night, with their yellow stamps and their green stamps, immortalized by the postmark—for to see one's own envelope on another's table is to realize how soon deeds sever and become alien. Then at last the power of the mind to quit the body is manifest, and perhaps we fear or hate or wish annihilated this phantom of ourselves, lying on the table.”
Virginia Woolf, Jacob's Room

Albert Camus
“But simultaneously he situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy.”
Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays

Fernando Pessoa
“I’ve created various personalities within. I constantly create personalities. Each of my dreams, as soon as I start dreaming it, is immediately incarnated in another person, who is then the one dreaming it, and not I.

To create, I’ve destroyed myself. I’ve so externalized myself on the inside that I don’t exist there except externally. I’m the empty stage where various actors act out various plays.”
Fernando Pessoa
