“It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time.
That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
― Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
“For example, the wind has its reasons.
We just don’t notice as we go about our lives.
But then, at some point, we are made to notice. The wind envelops you with a certain purpose
in mind, and it rocks you. The wind knows everything that’s inside you.
And not just the wind. Everything, including a stone. They all know us very well.
From top to bottom. It only occurs to us at certain times.
And all we can do is go with those things.
As we take them in, we survive, and deepen.”
― Haruki Murakami, Hear the Wind Sing
