Book cover for The Book of the Damned
That the new that has displaced the old will itself some day be displaced; that it, too, will be recognized as myth-stuff—
Haruki Murakami
“Nobody likes being alone that much. I don't go out of my way to make friends, that's all. It just leads to disappointment. ”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Haruki Murakami
“I don't think most people would like my personality. There might be a few--very few, I would imagine--who are impressed by it, but only rarely would anyone like it. Who in the world could possibly have warm feelings, or something like them, for a person who doesn't compromise, who instead, whenever a problem crops up, locks himself away alone in a closet? But is it ever possible for a professional writer to be liked by people? I have no idea. Maybe somewhere in the world it is. It's hard to generalize. For me, at least, I've written novels over many years, I just can't picture someone liking me on a personal level. Being disliked by someone, hated and despised, somehow seems more natural. Not that I'm relieved when that happens. Even I'm not happy when someone dislikes me.”
Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running

August Strindberg
“Life is not so idiotically mathematical that only the big eat the small; it is just as common for a bee to kill a lion or at least to drive it mad.”
August Strindberg, Miss Julie

John Michael Greer
“One the one hand, our economists treat human beings as rational actors making choices to maximize their own economic benefit. On the other hand, the same companies that hire those economists also pay for advertising campaigns that use the raw materials of myth and magic to encourage people to act against their own best interests, whether it's a matter of buying overpriced fizzy sugar water or the much more serious matter of continuing to support the unthinking pursuit of business as usual in the teeth of approaching disaster.”
John Michael Greer, The Long Descent: A User's Guide to the End of the Industrial Age

Jonathan Safran Foer
“While it is always possible to wake a person who's sleeping, no amount of noise will wake a person who is pretending to be asleep.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals
