Which road, which road did you take
That brought you here at last?

No road, no road did I take.
I leaped, I leaped from dream to dream.

– Franz Werfel

Do not waste the vast majority of your life doing something you hate so that you can spend the small remainder sliver of your life in modest comfort. You may never reach that end anyway.

Resist the temptation to get a job. Instead, play. Find something you enjoy doing. Do it. Over and over again. You will become good at it for two reasons: you like it, and you do it often. Soon, that will have value in itself.

– Adrian Tan

“When you walk a life of honesty, you live a life of truth.”

– Therese Benedict

“What you have learned from experience is worth much more than gold. If you have a house it may burn down. Any kind of possession can be lost, but your experience is yours forever. Keep it and find a way to use it.”

– Somaly Mam

“I think music is what language once aspired to be. Music allows us to face God on our own terms because it reaches beyond life.”

– Simon Van Booy

“You can’t hide the thunderbolt. When it hits you, everybody can see it. Christ, man, don’t be ashamed of it, some men pray for the thunderbolt. You’re a very lucky fellow.”

– Mario Puzo

lanatieneuncono1 asked: What Murakami's book would you recommend for a begginer on his writing? Also, what are the first five books you read that made you think of life in a different way or interfered with your perspective of it?

I would go for Norwegian Wood because it is a small and beautiful novel. Every book from Haruki Murakami is amazing, but they usually are a little bit thick and some people don’t love that. My favourite from him are Kafka on The Shore and Sputnik Sweetheart.

“I imagine what would happen if everyone turned their regrets into wishes, went around shouting them.”

– Nina LaCour

“God takes away the minds of poets, and uses them as his ministers, as he also uses diviners and holy prophets, in order that we who hear them may know them to be speaking not of themselves who utter these priceless words in a state of unconsciousness, but that God himself is the speaker, and that through them he is conversing with us.”

– Socrates

“Occasionally, there arises a writing situation where you see an alternative to what you are doing, a mad, wild gamble of a way for handling something, which may leave you looking stupid, ridiculous or brilliant -you just don’t know which. You can play it safe there, too, and proceed along the route you’d mapped out for yourself. Or you can trust your personal demon who delivered that crazy idea in the first place. Trust your demon.”

– Roger Zelazny
