My ideas usually come not at my desk writing but in the midst of living.


The dream was always running ahead of me. To catch up, to live for a moment in unison with it, that was the miracle.


People living deeply have no fear of death.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.


Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.


Anxiety is love's greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.


A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked.


Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.
