Haruki Murakami – On Being Peculiar

Haruki Murakami is known for his eccentric form of writing. It is like the eccentricity of Asian Literature combined with the flow of Western Literature. Even the topics and themes of the books he writes are unique. This is why many are intrigued by what is going on with his books and the subjects he tackles.

Haruki Murakami is a Japanese writer. His books and stories have been bestsellers in Japan as well as internationally, with his work being translated into 50 languages and selling millions of copies outside his native country.

Haruki Murakami’s literary style is a fusion of Eastern and Western influences, creating a narrative experience that resonates with readers worldwide. His ability to seamlessly blend elements of Asian and Western literature sets him apart in the literary landscape. Murakami’s stories often feature a surreal and dreamlike quality, where reality and fantasy intermingle, captivating the imagination of readers. This distinctive approach to storytelling invites readers into a realm where the boundaries between the ordinary and the extraordinary blur, leaving them in a state of contemplation long after they’ve turned the final page.

Here are some quotations from Haruki Murakami;

“I think you still love me, but we can’t escape the fact that I’m not enough for you. I knew this was going to happen. So I’m not blaming you for falling in love with another woman. I’m not angry, either. I should be, but I’m not. I just feel pain. A lot of pain. I thought I could imagine how much this would hurt, but I was wrong.”
― Haruki MurakamiSouth of the Border, West of the Sun

“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
― Haruki Murakami

“But who can say what’s best? That’s why you need to grab whatever chance you have of happiness where you find it, and not worry about other people too much. My experience tells me that we get no more than two or three such chances in a life time, and if we let them go, we regret it for the rest of our lives.”
― Haruki MurakamiNorwegian Wood

Don’t be peculiarly poetic. In every piece of word written for anyone you love or trust or respect, prove to them how unique you can be and show them that you have written for them because they, too, are special.
