“Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back. That’s part of what it means to be alive. But inside our heads - at least that’s where I imagine it - there’s a little room where we store those memories. A room like the stacks in this library. And to understand the workings of our own heart we have to keep on making new reference cards. We have to dust things off every once in awhile, let in fresh air, change the water in the flower vases. In other words, you’ll live forever in your own private library.”

– Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

“It is easy to forget how full the world is of people, full to bursting, and each of them imaginable and consistently misimagined.”

“Love is a rebellious bird,
that nobody can tame,
and you call him quite in vain,
if it suits him not to come.”

РLudovic Halévy
