“When something bothered me, I didn’t talk with anyone about it. I thought it over all by myself, came to a conclusion, and took action alone. Not that I really felt lonely. I thought that’s just the way things are. Human beings, in the final analysis, have to survive on their own.”—Haruki Murakami (村上 春樹), “Sputnik Sweetheart” (via xu-an)
“If you exist, you have to exist to excess, to the point of moldiness, bloatedness, obscenity. In another world, circles, musical themes keep their pure and rigid lines. But existence is a yielding.”—Jean-Paul Sartre, from Nausea
