Wind-Up-Bird-Chronicle

Happy Birthday to the brilliant Haruki Murakami -one of my favorite authors and one of today’s most compelling, imaginative voices.

You’re not a kid anymore. You have the right to choose your own life. You can start again. If you want a cat, all you have to do is choose a life in which you can have a cat. It’s simple. It’s your right.
—  Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” 

I realize full well how hard it must be to go on living alone in a place from which someone has left you, but there is nothing so cruel in this world as the desolation of having nothing to hope for.
