” in the life of a man, his time is but a moment,

his being an incessant flux, his sense a dim rush-light,

his body a prey of worms, his soul an unquiet eddy,

his fortune dark, his fame doubtful.

in short, all that is body is as coursing waters,

all that is of the soul as dreams and vapours.”

marcus aurelius

(taken from john irving’s fantastic novel “the world according to garp”.)

look at the rain long enough, with no thoughts in your head, and you gradually feel your body falling loose, shaking free the world’s reality.”

murakami haruki, “south of the border, west of the sun”

“happiness is an allegory, unhappiness a story.”

leon tolstoi

“under the shadow of the chestnut tree I sold you  and you sold me.”

george orwell, “1984”

“the pure present is an ungraspable advance of the past devouring the future. in truth, all sensation is already memory.”

henry bergson
