Interesting peek into Haruki Murakami's life and creative process. Very different from his novels. This is real life, no magical mind-bending stuff to be had in this book.
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
"This book is simply scary. Huxley's predictions of now-modern-day society are so accurate it makes you wonder if we're already living in the Brave New World. Sure, there are details to work out and costumes to adorn, but if we read this with a gra..." Read more of this review »

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart.
...live in the question.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Eleanor Roosevelt
“To be mature you have to realize what you value most... Not to arrive at a clear understanding of one's own values is a tragic waste. You have missed the whole point of what life is for.”
Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life

Albert Einstein
“All religions, arts and sciences are branches of the same tree. All these aspirations are directed toward ennobling man's life, lifting it from the sphere of mere physical existence and leading the individual towards freedom."

[Moral Decay (first published 1937)]”
Albert Einstein, Out of My Later Years: The Scientist, Philosopher, and Man Portrayed Through His Own Words

Eleanor Roosevelt

If you fail the first time then you'll just have to try harder the second time. After all, there's no real reason why you should fail. Just stop thinking about yourself.”
Eleanor Roosevelt, You Learn by Living: Eleven Keys for a More Fulfilling Life

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
