This book is extraordinary, it's extremely beautiful, it's philosophical, sentimental, a story of a young musician. This is a book you should take time to read in your life.

John Steinbeck
“Does anyone ever know even the outer fringe of another? What are you like in there? Mary-do you hear? Who are you in there?”
John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Personality is a physical matter almost entirely; it lowers the people it acts on - I've seen it vanish in a long sickness. But while a personality is active, it overrides 'the next thing.' Now a personage, on the other hand, gathers. He is never thought of apart from what he's done. He's a bar on which a thousand things have been hung — glittering things sometimes, as ours are; but he uses those things with a cold mentality back of them.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise

Hermann Hesse
“Searching means having a goal, but finding means being free, being open, having no goal ... because in striving for your goal there are many things you do not see, which are directly in front of your eyes.”
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

Salman Rushdie
“A son who will never be older than his motherland - neither older nor younger. There shall be two heads – but you will only see one – there will be knees and a nose, a nose and knees. Newspaper praises him, two mothers raise him! Bicycles love him – but crowds will shove him! Sisters will weep, cobras will creep… Washing will hide him – voices will guide him! Friends will mutilate him – blood will betray him! Spittoons will brain him – doctors will drain him – jungle will claim him – wizards reclaim him! Soldiers will try him – tyrants will fry him… He will have sons without having sons! He will be old before he is old! And he will die before he is dead!”
Salman Rushdie, Midnight's Children

Orhan Pamuk
“Happiness means being close to the one you love, that's all. (Taking immediate possession is not necessary.)”
Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence
