Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Yukio Mishima
#1. Reiko had not kept a diary and was now denied the pleasure of assiduously rereading her record of the happiness of the past few months and consigning each page to the fire as she did so.
- Death in Midsummer and Other Stories #Quote by Yukio Mishima
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Haruki Murakami
#2. Reiko deepened the wrinkles at the corners of her eyes and looked at me for a time. "You've got this funny way of talking," she said. "Don't tell me you're trying to imitate that boy in Catcher in the Rye?" "No way!" I said with a smile. Reiko smiled too, cigarette in mouth. "You are a good person, though. I can tell that much from looking at you. I can tell these things after seven years of watching people come and go here: there are people who can open their hearts and people who can't. You're one of the ones who can. Or, more precisely, you can if you want to. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Haruki Murakami
#3. I began guitar after coming here as there wasn't a piano about. I taught myself, but my fingers just aren't cut out for the guitar, so I can't seem to get very good. Still, I like the innstrument. It's light, simple, straighforward, like a warm little room, nice and cozy. #Quote by Haruki Murakami

#4. Reiko smiled too, cigarette in mouth. "You are a good person, though.
I can tell that much from looking at you. I can tell these things after seven years of watching people come and go here: there are people who can open their hearts and people who can't. You're one of the ones who can. Or, more precisely, you can if you want to."
"What happens when people open their hearts?"
Reiko clasped her hands together on the table, cigarette dangling from her lips. She was enjoying this. "They get better," she said. Ash dropped onto the table, but she seemed not to notice. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Haruki Murakami
#5. Reiko moved on to the Beatles, playing "Norwegian Wood," "Yesterday," "Michelle," and "Something." She sang and played "Here Comes the Sun," then played "The Fool on the Hill." I laid seven matches in a row. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Haruki Murakami
#6. April ended and May came along, but May was even worse than April. In the deepening spring of May, I had no choice but to recognize the trembling of my heart. It usually happened as the sun was going down. In the pale evening gloom, when the soft fragrance of magnolias hung in the air, my heart would swell without warning, and tremble, and lurch with a stab of pain. I would try clamping my eyes shut and gritting my teeth, and wait for it to pass. And it would pass....but slowly, taking its own time, and leaving a dull ache behind.
At those times I would write to Naoko. In my letters to her, I would describe only things that were touching or pleasant or beautiful: the fragrance of grasses, the caress of a spring breeze, the light of the moon, a movie I'd seen, a song I liked, a book that had moved me. I myself would be comforted by letters like this when I would reread what I had written. And I would feel that the world I lived in was a wonderful one. I wrote any number of letters like this, but from Naoko or Reiko I heart nothing. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Haruki Murakami
#7. Reiko set the ball on the ground and patted my knee. "Look," she said, "I'm not telling you to stop sleeping with girls. If you're O.K. with that, then it's OK. It's your life after all, it's something you have to decide. All I'm saying is that you shouldn't use yourself up in some unnatural form. Do you see what I'm getting at? It would be such a waste. The years nineteen and twenty are a crucial stage in the maturation of character, and if you allow yourself to become warped when you're that age, it will cause you pain when you're older. It's true. So think carefully. If you want to take care of Naoko, take care of yourself too."
I said I would think about it. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Reiko Chiba
#8. The Transitoriness of Life
To what may man's life be compared?
To a boat which rowed away,
Far in the sea, and left no track,
In the morning of the day.
Shami Mansai #Quote by Reiko Chiba
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Haruki Murakami
#9. I cry when I'm lonely. Reiko says it's good I can cry. But feeling lonely really hurts. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Reiko Chiba
#10. SakeThe jewel which brightly shines at nightIs precious, but cannot measure up To the delights of drinking sake,Drowning one's troubles in the cup. Otomo no Tabito #Quote by Reiko Chiba
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Reiko Chiba
#11. Winter and Summer
While it's summer people say
Winter is the better season.
Such is human reason.
Kamijima Onitsura #Quote by Reiko Chiba
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by David Sedaris
#12. A Japanese woman we'd met in Paris came to the apartment yesterday and spent several hours explaining our appliances. The microwave, the water kettle, the electric bathtub: everything blinks and bleeps and calls out in the middle of the night. I'd wondered what the rice maker was carrying on about, and Reiko told us that it was on a timer and simply wanted us to know that it was present and ready for duty. That was the kettle's story as well, while the tub was just being an asshole and waking us up for no reason. #Quote by David Sedaris
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Reiko Saibara
#13. Tears will not fill your stomach; Tears will not bring kindness. If you have time to shed tears, laugh; someone will be willing to look at a hearty smile more then a tear soaked sponge. #Quote by Reiko Saibara
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Haruki Murakami
#14. Toru: What happens when people open their hearts?
Reiko: They get better. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Reiko Chiba
#15. An Elegy
A thousand times must we deplore
The lost will never come to life again;
Even as flowing water runs away,
Returning nevermore.
Lady Kanin #Quote by Reiko Chiba
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Reiko Aylesworth
#16. I didn't know a soul when I got to New York, and I felt really displaced. The first week I was euphoric, and then I realized how isolating the city can be. #Quote by Reiko Aylesworth
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Reiko Chiba
#17. Steadfast Seas and MountainsThe lofty mountains and the seas, Being mountains, being seas, Both exist and are real. But frail as flowers are the lives of men, Passing phantoms of this world. #Quote by Reiko Chiba
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Haruki Murakami
#18. What makes us the most normal," said Reiko, "is knowing that we're not normal. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Kikukawa Reiko quotes by Haruki Murakami
#19. You're wasting your life being involved with me."
"I'm not wasting anything."
"But I might never recover. Will you wait for me forever? Can you wait 10 years, 20 years?"
"You're letting yourself be scared by too many things," I said. "The dark, bad dreams, the power of the dead. You have to forget them. I'm sure you'll get well if you do."
"If I can," said Naoko, shaking her head.
"If you can get out of this place, will you live with me?" I asked.
"Then I can protect you from the dark and from bad dreams. Then you'd have me instead of Reiko to hold you when things got difficult."
Naoko pressed still more firmly against me.
"That would be wonderful," she said. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
