Cloud Atlas
"Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future." "We looked at each other for the last time; nothing is as eloquent as nothing."

Illumination Night
"He knows what it's like to be afraid of thunder and have someone's hand to hold. What he does not know about is passion, although he is beginning to think passion has less to do with uncontrollable urges than with hope."

The Blue Guitar: A novel
"The mind when it starts to doubt, I said, knows no limits, and will credit the most outlandish fantasies. I should have shut up, of course, instead of which I kept on tugging at that loose end of yarn." "How my mind wanders, trying to avoid itself, only to meet itself again, with a horrible start, coming round the other way." "This is the way it is with me, always looking in or looking out, a chilly pane of glass between me and a remote and longed-for world." "What is my true subject? Are we talking authenticity here? My only aim always, from the very start, was to get down in form that formless tension floating in the darkness inside my skull, like the unfading after-image of a lightning flash."

The Left Hand of Darkness
"No, I don't mean love, when I say patriotism. I mean fear. The fear of the other. And its expressions are political, not poetical: hate, rivalry, aggression." "The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty: not knowing what comes next." "“How does one hate a country, or love one?...I know people, I know towns, farms, hills and rivers and rocks, I know how the sun at sunset in autumn falls on the side of a certain plowland in the hills; but what is the sense of giving a boundary to all that, of giving it a name and ceasing to love where the name ceases to apply? What is love of one's country; is it hate of one's uncountry? Then it's not a good thing. Is it simply self-love? That's a good thing, but one mustn't make a virtue of it, or a profession." "It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end."

All the Pretty Horses
"In the end we all come to be cured of our sentiments. Those whom life does not cure death will. The world is quite ruthless in selecting between the dream and the reality, even where we will not. Between the wish and the thing the world lies waiting."
