Haruki Murakami Quotes About Plant

Browse 5 famous quotes of Haruki Murakami about Plant.

"Along the way I stopped into a coffee shop. All around me normal, everyday city types were going about their normal, everyday affairs. Lovers were whispering to each other, businessmen were poring over spread sheets, college kids were planning their next ski trip and discussing the new Police album. We could have been in any city in Japan. Transplant this coffee shop scene to Yokohama or Fukuoka and nothing would seem out of place. In spite of which -- or, rather, all the more because -- here I was, sitting in this coffee shop, drinking my coffee, feeling a desperate loneliness. I alone was the outsider. I had no place here. Of course, by the same token, I couldn't really say I belonged to Tokyo and its coffee shops. But I had never felt this loneliness there. I could drink my coffee, read my book, pass the time of day without any special thought, all because I was part of the regular scenery. Here I had no ties to anyone. Fact is, I'd come to reclaim myself." ~ Haruki Murakami
"Se chove, as plantas florescem; se não há chuva, secam e morrem. Os insectos são comidos pelas lagartixas, por sua vez devoradas pelos pássaros. Todos acabam por morrer e, depois de mortos, ficam ressequidos. Uma geração desaparece, outra toma o seu lugar. É assim que as coisas se passam. Há muitas maneiras de viver. Há muitas maneiras de morrer. Isso, porém, não tem qualquer importância. No fim, fica apenas o deserto. Só o deserto permanece verdadeiramente vivo." ~ Haruki Murakami
"If writing novels is like planting a forest, then writing short stories is more like planting a garden. The two processes complement each other, creating a complete landscape that I treasure. The green foliage of the trees casts a pleasant shade over the earth, and the wind rustles the leaves, which are sometimes dyed a brilliant gold. Meanwhile, in the garden, buds appear on the flowers, and colorful petals attract bees and butterflies, reminding us of the subtle transition from one season to the next." ~ Haruki Murakami
"I plant my elbows on the kitchen table, prop up my chin and think: When the hell did the compass needle get out of whack and lead my life astray?" ~ Haruki Murakami
"Strange and mysterious things, though, aren't they - earthquakes? We take it for granted that the earth beneath our feet is solid and stationary. We even talk about people being 'down to earth' or having their feet firmly planted on the ground. But suddenly one day we see that it isn't true. The earth, the boulders, that are supposed to be solid, all of a sudden turn as mushy as liquid - From the short story "Thailand" ~ Haruki Murakami

La Fin de l'Histoire ce n'est pas le bonheur mais l'horreur. Ce n'est pas le premier matin mais le dernier. Ce n'est pas l'euphorie perpétuelle mais les flammes de l'enfer.(ch. 25 Hegel et Kojève africains)"
