If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things

I adore purchasing, borrowing, hoarding, and reading books.

Look Away And Into A Book »

Look away, and into a book.
Your favorite tv shows can wait,
then umbrella them on a rainy day
and pour yourself into their soup.

Look away, and into a book.
The internet will be here forever,
remember every damn thing until
they put the whole of it into a pill.

Apparently Julian Draxler said that he loves Dragon Ball. So this makes sense now. Can’t believe two grown up man are still doing this :) extremely cute and adorable.

いつものことだが
電車は満員だった。
そして
いつものことだが
若者と娘が腰をおろし
としよりが立っていた。
うつむいていた娘が立って
としよりに席をゆずった。
そそくさととしよりが座った。
礼も言わずにとしよりは次の駅で降りた。
娘は坐った。
別のとしよりが娘の前に
横あいから押されてきた。
娘はうつむいた。
しかし
又立って
席を
そのとしよりにゆずった。
としよりは次の駅で礼を言って降りた。
娘は坐った。
二度あることは と言う通り
別のとしよりが娘の前に
押し出された。
可哀想に。
娘はうつむいて
そして今度は席を立たなかった。
次の駅も
次の駅も
下唇をギュッと噛んで
身体をこわばらせて---。
僕は電車を降りた。

固くなってうつむいて
娘はどこまで行ったろう。
やさしい心の持主は
いつでもどこでも
われにもあらず受難者となる。
何故って
やさしい心の持主は
他人のつらさを自分のつらさのように
感じるから。
やさしい心に責められながら
娘はどこまでゆけるだろう。
下唇を噛んで
つらい気持ちで
美しい夕焼けも見ないで。

– 吉野弘「夕焼け」

“If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would just be too painful, that maybe it’d be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I’d do it. I can lose you like that if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay.”

Then it is Adam who lets go. His sobs burst like fists pounding against tender flesh. 

I close my eyes. I cover my ears. I cannot watch this. I cannot hear this. 

But then, it is no longer Adam that I hear. It’s that sound, the low moan that in an instant takes flight and turns into something sweet. It’s the cello. Adam has placed headphones over my lifeless ears and is laying an iPod down on my chest. He’s apologizing, saying that he knows this isn’t my favorite but it was the best he could do. He turns up the volume so I can hear the music floating across the morning air. Then he takes my hand. 

It is Yo-Yo Ma. Playing Andante con poco e moto rubato. The low piano plays almost as if in warning. In comes the cello, like a heart bleeding. And it’s like something inside of me implodes. “

If I Stay - Gayle Forman

That moment when you have to stop reading a book because it’s making you cry at a coffee shop.
