What I talk about

Reading the book is like taking a walk in a field filled with gems.

Here's one which strike a chord with me.

"Life is basically unfair. But even in a situation that's unfair, I think it's possible to seek out a kind of fairness. Of course, that might take time and effort. And maybe it won't seem to be worth all that. It's up to each individual to decide whether or not it is."

Here's another one.

"...I don't think it's merely willpower that makes you able to do something. The world isn't that simple. To tell the truth, I don't even think there's that much correlation between my running every day and whether or not I have a strong will. I think I've been able to run for more than twenty years for a simple reason: it suits me."

Lastly, ironically,

"The most important thing we ever learn at school is the fact that the most important things can't be learned at school."
