"She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something."
"Have you ever had that feeling— that you’d like to go to whole different place and become a whole different self."
Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle (via durianquotes)
"Strong and independent? I’m neither. I’m just being pushed along by reality, whether I like it or not."
