Whatever it is you're seeking won't come in the form you're expecting. - Murakami

"But this is not the last time. We will see her again. She was weird; she anticipated the end of the world because that meant seeing her Savior face to face. When she realized how life on earth is a mission and a story, she started looking at death only as a door to eternity. Not something to be afraid of, but a mere transition to the greater and more beautiful things. And maybe, when we think of her, let’s not think of her as gone. She had simply gone on first into the adventure that will never end, where one page will never be as beautiful as the next page."

"He will brush against your thigh and pretend that he didn’t, and he’ll look you in the eyes and tell you he likes them. He will take the band out of your ponytail because he likes your hair long, he will let you listen to his favourite song and it will get stuck in your head. He will kiss your lips until they are numb and he will hold your hands until they go numb too. Don’t watch the sunset with him, because you won’t be able to watch it again without missing the smell of his cologne. Don’t make him call you by your nickname, because afterwards you won’t be able to hear it. Your heart will be heavy and so will your head but just remember you were beautiful before he said so."

Clifford, and his daughter Elaine. “When I was young, there was little bit of difference in the value of money. And when I was young, one dollar was quite a bit of money. I started working hard for ten cents an hour and now people are working for thirty dollars an hour. Something like that is quite a difference in change. My wife passed away three years ago and she was a hundred and four. When she was born, car tires were invented and at a hundred at four, people are going to the moon.”

"There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout: This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don’t fit your ideal of who I should be and don’t try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision. When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you."
