Storm is tactic to produce change

“A certain type of perfection can only be realized through a limitless accumulation of the imperfect.”

“What we seek is some kind of compensation for what we put up with.”

“Even if we could turn back, we’d probably never end up where we started.”

“Whatever it is you’re seeking won’t come in the form you’re expecting.”

“You can keep as quiet as you like, but one of these days somebody is going to find you.”

“I dream. Sometimes I think that’s the only right thing to do.”

“No matter what they wish for, no matter how far they go, people can never be anything but themselves.”
“What we call the present is given shape by an accumulation of the past.”

“People’s memories are maybe the fuel they burn to stay alive.”

“Anyone who falls in love is searching for the missing pieces of themselves.”

“If you can’t understand it without an explanation, you can’t understand it with an explanation.”

“Despite your best efforts, people are going to be hurt when it’s time for them to be hurt.”

“Chance encounters are what keep us going.”

“Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.”

“Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it.”

“Listen up – there’s no war that will end all wars.”

“Life is so uncertain: you never know what could happen. One way to deal with that is to keep your pajamas washed.”

“When you come out of a storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what the storm is about.”

“Spend your money on the things money can buy. Spend your time on the things money can’t buy.”

“I sometimes think that people’s hearts are like deep wells. Nobody knows what’s at the bottom. All you can do is imagine by what comes floating to the surface every once in a while.”

“Knowledge and ability are tools, not things to show off.”

“Time weighs down on you like an old, ambiguous dream. You keep on moving, trying to sleep through it. But even if you go to the ends of the earth, you won’t be able to escape it. Still, you have to go there- to the edge of the world. There’s something you can’t do unless you get there.”

Haruki Murakami
