Ryu Murakami

"They don't realize that they've changed; they think it's the world that changed."
(Seite 20)

"Sure, honey, I know what you're talking about, but you've got to ignore stuff like that; they're illusions, self-deceptions, what you feel when you want everything but you're not willing to do anything to get it. You're fooling yourself and you don't even know it."
"Illusions? But that's fine with me."
(Seite 166/167)

"Patient?! What are you talking about? Sometimes you don't make any sense," she said. "'Patience' is the thing I hate most in the whole world. We're all too patient as it is.

(Seite 176)

(Seite 498)

  1. Schöne, abwechslungsreiche Zitate präsentierst du uns hier wieder. "Illusions? But that's fine with me" hat mir gerade einen kleinen Lachflash beschert. Unbedingt reinlesen muss ich aber wohl in die Geistergeschichten.

    Einen schönen, entspannten ersten März-Sonntag wünsch ich dir!
