Ich habe immer viel gelesen - ich erinnere mich mit Bücherstapeln, die größer als ich selbst waren, von der Bücherei nach Hause zu laufen.
Ich versuche jungen Autoren immer zu erklären, dass Leidenschaft die wichtigste Eigenschaft eines Schriftstellers ist. Technik kann man lernen, aber der Drang zu schreiben muss von innen kommen.
Es ist schwer, komplett ehrlich mit uns selbst zu sein - wir hassen es, uns einzugestehen, wie verwundbar wir sind.
Liebe ist immer ein Sprung ins Unbekannte. Man kann versuchen, möglichst viele Variablen zu kontrollieren und die Situation zu verstehen, aber man springt am Ende doch von einer Klippe und hofft, dass jemand einen auffängt.
Sometimes a woman needs a man for company, no matter how useless he is.

Walk until the darkness is a memory, and you become the sun on the next traveler's horizon.

Do you know the parable about the frog in the cream? Two frogs landed in a pail of cream. One, thinking rationally, understood straight away that there was no point in resistance and that you can't deceive destiny. But then what if there's an afterlife – why bother jumping around, entertaining false hopes in vain? He crossed his legs and sank to the bottom. The second, the fool, was probably an atheist. And she started to flop around. It would seem that she had no reason to flail about if everything was predestined. But she flopped around and flopped around anyway . . . Meanwhile, the cream turned to butter. And she crawled out. We honour the memory of this second frog's friend, eternally damned for the sake of progress and rational thought.
There are some things that you don't want to do and you pledge to yourself that you won't do, you forbid yourself, and then suddenly they happen all by themselves. You don't even have time to think about them, and they don't make it to the cognitive centres of the brain: they just happen and that's it, and you're left just watching yourself with surprise, and convincing yourself that it wasn't your fault, it just happened all by itself.
The same species can't remain dominant forever. Humanity can't be the only ones to survive extinction. Do you think the ammonites and the dinosaurs resisted extinction like we do? Of course not! They graciously accepted their destinies. They weren't just unintelligent enough to avoid it. Humanity goes around recording and sharing our past to help us predict our future, and because of that we just assume that we can change our destiny. That we can overcome something like the Death Stranding. But it's all lies. This world doesn't need us anymore. It's trying to evict us to make room for the next species. And the harder we try and the harder we struggle against it, the more we sully it. Being holed up in here, I bet you have no idea how beautiful the outside world is, do you? How harsh it is? The world didn't change into what it is now for mankind's sake. It's trying to change for the life that comes next.
