David Mitchell
“My life amounts to no more than one drop in a limitless ocean. Yet what is any ocean, but a multitude of drops?”
David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

Ruth Ozeki
“Am I crazy?" she asked. "I feel like I am sometimes."
"Maybe," he said, rubbing her forehead. "But don't worry about it. You need to be a little bit crazy. Crazy is the price you pay for having an imagination. It's your superpower. Tapping into the dream. It's a good thing not a bad thing.”
Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being

Paul Valéry
“Le vent se lève! . . . il faut tenter de vivre!
L'air immense ouvre et referme mon livre,
La vague en poudre ose jaillir des rocs!
Envolez-vous, pages tout éblouies!
Rompez, vagues! Rompez d'eaux réjouies
Ce toit tranquille où picoraient des focs!”
Paul Valéry, Le cimetière marin / El cementerio marino

Ruth Ozeki
“She smiled. “Life is full of stories. Or maybe life is only stories. Good night, my dear Nao.”
Ruth Ozeki, A Tale for the Time Being
