Aomame raised her glass to the moon and asked,
“Have you gone to bed with someone in your arms lately?”
The moon did not answer.
“Do you have any friends?” she asked.
The moon did not answer.
“Do you get tired of always playing it cool?”
The moon did not answer.

literature meme | prose (1/10) | 1Q84, HARUKI MURAKAMI

"If you can’t understand it without an explanation, you can’t understand it with an explanation.”

I’m tired of living unable to love anyone. I don’t have a single friend - not one. And, worst of all, I can’t even love myself. Why is that? Why can’t I love myself? It’s because I can’t love anyone else. A person learns how to love himself through the simple acts of loving and being loved by someone else. Do you understand what I am saying? A person who is incapable of loving another cannot properly love himself.
Murakami, Haruki. 1Q84
