"So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be."

"We accept the love we think we deserve."

"It's strange because sometimes, I read a book, and I think I am the people in the book. Also, when I write letters, I spend the next few days thinking about what I figured out in my letters. I do not know if this is good or bad."

"You see things. You keep quiet about them. And you understand."

"I just think it's bad when a boy looks at  a girl and thinks that the way he sees the girl is better than the girl actually is. And I think it's bad when the most honest way a boy can look at a girl is through a camera."

"Personally, I like to think my brother is having a college experience like they do in the movies. I don't mean the big fraternity party kind of movie. More like the movie where the guy meets a smart girl who wears a lot of sweaters and drinks cocoa. They talk about books and issues and kiss in the rain. I think something like that would be very good for him, especially if the girl were unconventionally beautiful. They are the best kind of girls, I think."

"I am very interested and fascinated by how everyone loves each other, but no one really likes each other."

\"Sometimes, I look outside, and I think that  alot of other people have seen this snow before. Just like I think that a lot of other people have read those books before. And listened to those songs."

"And all the books you've read have been read by other people. And all the songs you've loved have been heard by other people. And that girl that's pretty to you is pretty to other people. And that if you looked at these facts when you were happy, you would feel great because you are describing 'unity'."

"So, tomorrow, I'm leaving. And I'm not going to let that happen again with anyone else. I'm going to do what I want to do. I'm going to be who I really am. And I'm going to figure out what that is."

"It’s like looking at all the students and wondering who’s had their heart broken that day, and how they are able to cope with having three quizzes and a book report on top of that. Or wondering who did the heart breaking. And wondering why. "

“I would die for you. But I won’t live for you.”

"Please believe that things are good with me, and even when they're not, they will be soon enough."

"And in that moment, I swear we were infinite."
-The Perks of Being a Wallflower

世界上有可以挽回的事,还有不可挽回的事。 而时间的经过,就是一件不可挽回的事。 已经来到这里了,就不可以回到过去。 -夏天的尾巴


"When you're young, you think it's going to be solved by love. But it never is. Being close -as close as you can get- to another person only makes clear the impassable distance between you."

"Me? I've been lonely my whole life. For as long as I can remember, since I was a child. Sometimes being around other people makes it worse."

"He spoke of human solitude, about the intrinsic loneliness of a sophisticated mind, one that is capable of reason and poetry but which grasps at straws when it comes to understanding another, a mind aware of the impossibility of absolute understanding. The difficulty of having a mind that understands that it will always be misunderstood."

"I mean, how many someone elses can one claim to be in a lifetime? It's not very long a life, is it, Max? You're a kid, it's sumer, your blink your eyes and years-years-have passed. And you realize that you've become someone else, but that your heart is still caught in that lost kid. That what you're left with beating in your chest is a diminished thing, a shadow of what it was when you were a boy and running under the night sky you felt it was filled to bursting."
-Man Walks Into a Room

"and the love whatever it was, an infection" -Wanting to Die, Anne Sexton

"There’s an art to living well. I’m trying to learn it."-coffeeandirony

"Today's Sunday, though, a day I don't wind my spring. I've done my laundry, and now I'm in my room, writing to you. Once I've finished this letter and put a stamp on it and dropped it into the postbox, there's nothing for me to do until the sun goes down. I don't study on Sundays, either. I do a good enough job on weekdays studying in the library between lectures, so I don't have anything left to do on Sundays. Sunday afternoons are quiet, peaceful, and, for me, lonely. I read books or listen to music. Sometimes I think back on the different routes we used to take in our Sunday walks around Tokyo. I can come up with a pretty clear picture of the clothes you were wearing on any particular walk. I remember all kinds of things on Sunday afternoons."

"How many Sundays - how many hundreds of Sundays like this - lay ahead of me? 'Quiet, peaceful, and lonely,' I said aloud to myself. On Sundays, I didn't wind my spring."

"I wrote a huge number of letters that spring: one a week to Naoko, several to Reiko, and several more to Midori. I wrote letters in the lecture hall, I wrote letters at my desk at home with Seagull on my lap, I wrote letters at empty tables during my breaks at the Italian restaurant. It was as if I were writing letters to hold together the pieces of my crumbling life."

"Once upon a time, you dragged a part of me into the world of the dead, and now Naoko has dragged another part of me into that world. Sometimes I feel like the caretaker of a museum - a huge, empty museum where no one ever comes, and I'm watching over it for no one but myself."
-Norwegian Wood

"And though you were grown up by then, you felt as lost as a child. And though your pride was broken, you felt as vast as your love for her. She was gone, and all that was left was the space where you'd grown around her, like a tree that grows around a fence."

"During the Age of Glass, everyone believed some part of him or her to be extremely fragile. For some it was a hand, for others a femur, yet others believed it was their noses that were made of glass. The Age of Glass followed the Stone Age as an evolutionary corrective, introducing into human relations a new sense of fragility that fostered compassion."

"One day my father laughed and corrected me. Everything snapped into focus. It's one of those unforgettable moments that happen as a child, when you discover that all along the world has been betraying you."

"When I sat up he was looking at me. His face was hopeful and unbelieving and also a little sad, and I wondered if it was anything like my father's face when he looked at my mother all those years ago at the Dead Sea, setting in motion a train of events that had finally brought me here, to the middle of nowhere, with a boy I'd grown up with but hardly knew."

-The History of Love

"This is how clowns go-when the world's great indifference
invades us, enters us bitterly, like lead between our teeth."
-How Clowns Go, Adam Zagajewski

"The prose of life spreads out around us,
while poetry crouches in the heart's chambers."
-The World's Prose, Adam Zagajewski
