"My love for you is slowly plummeting into the ground. And by this point, I don’t think there is anything that either of us can do to stop it."
"'Was it hard?' I ask. 'Letting go?'
‘Not as hard as holding on to something that wasn’t real.’"

"Each one of us is alone in the world… We seek pitifully to convey to others the treasures of our heart, but they have not the power to accept them, and so we go lonely, side by side but not together, unable to know our fellows and unknown by them. We are like people living in a country whose language they know so little that, with all manner of beautiful and profound things to say, they are condemned to the banalities of the conversation manual. Their brain is seething with ideas, and they can only tell you that the umbrella of the gardener’s aunt is in the house."
— W. Somerset Maugham, The Moon And Sixpence
"The thing I’m most afraid of is me. Of not knowing what I’m going to do. Of not knowing what I’m doing right now."
— Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
