"So that's how we live our lives. No matter how deep and fatal the loss,
no matter how important the thing that's stolen from us - that's
snatched right out of our hands - even if we are left completely
changed people with only the outer layer of skin from before, we
continue to play out our lives this way, in silence. We draw ever
nearer to our allotted span of time, bidding it farewell as it trails
off behind. Repeating, often adroitly, the endless deeds of the
everyday. Leaving behind a feeling of immeasurable emptiness..."
--Sputnik Sweetheart (Haruki Murakami)
In any real city you walk, you know? you brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We’re always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss the touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something.
Crash (movie 2004)
Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again.

Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, and make it possible.

Perhaps it is better to wake up after all, even to suffer; than to remain a dupe to illusions all one’s life.
Kate Chopin, 1899 (via anonymicx)
The further you go, the more you have to be proud of. At the same time, in order to come a long way, you have to be behind to begin with. In the end, though, maybe it’s not how you reach a place that matters. Just that you get there at all.
