national handwriting day

Today is National Handwriting Day.

Sakura was asking their followers to upload a picture with their favorite quote and I accepted the proposal.

But, since choosing “a favorite quote” is such a difficult task, I decided to pick one of the book that I’m currently reading (as I posted before that I would do).

These months I’ve been reading “Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World” by Haruki Murakami; the 4th novel that I read from this author.

I liked this book, specially, those long moments of solitary thoughts but I didn’t go nuts for the story (that’s the reason why it took me so long!).

The quote that I chose from this book was: “Deep rivers run quiet“. But these are also others that I highlighted:

“Humans are immortal in their thought. Though strictly speakin’, not immortal, but endlessly, asymptotically close to immortal. That’s eternal life.”

“Eternity can actually be experienced” (this quote made me remember a how a person can describe a panic attack).

“I have a thing about losers. Flaws in oneself open you op to others with flaws”

“Everyone may be ordinary, but they’re not normal (…) But there’s normal and there’s normal. I mean the kind of normal that can sit down next to you on the train and you wouldn’t even notice. We eat food, drink beer–oh, by  the way, the sandwiches were great!”

“Nobody got the keys to t’the elephant inside us. Freud and Jung and all the rest of them published their theories  but all they did was t’invent a lot of jargon t’get people talkin'”

I think I’m going to take a break from Murakami, but I still really love his writing style and crazy stories.
