When I first met you, I felt a kind of contradiction in you. You’re seeking something, but at the same time, you are running away for all you’re worth.
— Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore (via larmoyante)
Suddenly you’re ripped into being alive. And life is pain, and life is suffering, and life is horror, but my god you’re alive and it’s spectacular.
— Joseph Campbell (via im-a-hostage-to-my-own-humanity)
