Mad dash to nowhere
Time weighs down on you like an old, ambiguous dream. You keep on moving, trying to sleep through it. But even if you go to the ends of the earth, you won’t be able to escape it. Still, you have to go there- to the edge of the world. There’s something you can’t do unless you get there.
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
I have this vision: That I would finally come and find you. Scattered pieces of distance would not stand in my way. Not needing words; the barest of glimpses would suffice for you and me.
Franz Kafka, Letters To Milena
The sweet small clumsy feet of April came into the ragged meadow of my soul.
 E.E Cummings, If I Have Made My Lady Intricate
You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.
James Baldwin
Your bad love of yourselves makes solitude a prison to you. But let this be your honor: always to love more than you are loved and never to be second in this.
Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
