“There are some things about myself I can’t explain to anyone. There are some things I don’t understand at all. I can’t tell what I think about things or what I’m after. I don’t know what my strengths are or what I’m supposed to do about them. But if I start thinking about these things in too much detail the whole thing gets scary. And if I get scared I can only think about myself. I become really self-centered, and without meaning to, I hurt people. So I’m not such a wonderful human being.” 
― Haruki MurakamiThe Elephant Vanishes

“- Don’t worry.You really are part of here, really. Always have been, always will be. It all starts here, it all ends here. This is your place. It’s the knot. It’s tied to everything.- Everything?- Everything. Things you lost. Things you’re gonna lose. Everything. Here’s where it all ties together.”Dance Dance Dance - Haruki Murakami

- Everything?
- Everything. Things you lost. Things you’re gonna lose. Everything. Here’s where it all ties together.
