In a Twitter bio this evening, I came across this Haruki Murakami quote: "Between a high, solid wall and an egg that breaks against it, I will always stand on the side of the egg."
The full short speech behind this amazing quote is amazing.
Here's a longer excerpt:
"We are all human beings, individuals transcending nationality and race and religion, fragile eggs faced with a solid wall called the System. To all appearances, we have no hope of winning. The wall is too high, too strong -- and too cold. If we have any hope of victory at all, it will have to come from our believing in the utter uniqueness and irreplaceability of our own and others' souls and from the warmth we gain by joining souls together."
