8. "- A veces tengo la impresión de que todas las personas que he conocido desde que vine a Japón, incluyendo a Otohiko, son un poco insustanciales. No me siento identificada con ellas. Siempre he pensando que las personas eran más extrañas, deshonestas, desordenadas, viles, nobles, en fin, que tenían muchas más facetas. Que la vida era fantástica, y el amor, algo maravilloso. Yo soy, según la ocasión, femenina, fuerte y frágil, capaz de pelearme con alguien, gritando hasta quedarme ronca, y, acto seguido, de mirar juntos la luna cogidos de la mano. De experimentar cada día sensaciones diferentes haciendo las mismas cosas. De llorar y de dar miedo. Pero sigo siendo siempre la misma."
Author: Banana Yoshimoto
9. "It is a curious and painful fact that almost all the completely futile treatments that have been believed in during the long history of medical folly have been such as caused acute suffering to the patient.

13. "Living is about capturing the essence of things. I go through my life every day with a vial, a vial wherein can be found precious essential oils of every kind! The priceless, fragrant oils that are the essence of my experiences, my thoughts. I walk inside a different realm from everybody else, in that I am existing in the essence of things; every time there is reason to smile, I hold out my glass vial and capture that drop of oil, that essence, and then I smile. And that is why I have smiled, and so you and I may be smiling at the same time but I am smiling because of that one drop of cherished, treasured oil that I have extracted. When I write, I find no need to memorize an idea, a plot, a sequence of things: no. I must only capture the essence of a feeling or a thought and once I have inhaled that aroma, I know that I have what I need."

I don't mean to imply that I am abnormally sized human who happens to also be a jerk, but, instead, that I am a normal-sized human who happens to sometimes be an extra-large jerk.
