Kafka on the shore


After finishing "Kafka on the shore", I really wanna share some quotes in it with you guys, I really recommend this book, though it does take some time to finish it, but it definitely worths it! once you finish the first two chapters, you will be fascinated by Murakami's words and won't be able to stop reading it. so here it is:)

"people are born in order to live, right? But the longer I've lived, the more I've lost what's inside me- and ended up empty."

"But eventually every kind of wind dies out and disappears"

"People soon get tired of things that aren't boring, but not of what is boring. What's that all about. For me, I might have the leisure to be bored, but not to grow tired of something. Most people can't distinguish between the two. "

"There's no war that will end all wars. War breeds war. War is a perfect-self-contained being"

"Memories warm you up from inside. But they also tear you apart"

"Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing direction. You change direction, but the sandstorm chases you. You turn again, but the storm adjusts. ...... Why? Because this storm isn't something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you. This storm is you. Something inside you. So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your ears so the sand doesn't get in, and walk through it , step by step."

"And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in."

"You finally fall asleep. And when you wake up, it's true. You are part of a brand-new world"

Hope you like them:D
