Torments at Sea

Guide to the characters of David Mitchell.


Cloud Atlas starters

  • “A half-read book is a half-finished love affair.”
  • "Our lives are not our own."
  • "Yesterday, my life was headed in one direction. Today, it is headed in another."
  • “Books don't offer real escape, but they can stop a mind scratching itself raw.”
  • “Travel far enough, you meet yourself.”
  • “Power, time, gravity, love. The forces that really kick ass are all invisible.”
  • "It doesn't mean you're defective - it just means you're human.”
  • "No, what's selfish is to demand another to endure an intolerable existence, just to spare families, friends, and enemies a bit of soul-searching.”
  • “Unlimited power in the hands of limited people always leads to cruelty.”
  • “We are only what we know, and I wished to be so much more than I was, sorely.”
  • “Fantasy. Lunacy. All revolutions are, until they happen, then they are historical inevitabilities.”
  • "...there ain't no journey what don't change you some.”
  • “Belief, like fear or love, is a force to be understood as we understand the theory of relativity and principals of uncertainty."
  • “Truth is singular. Its 'versions' are mistruths.”
  • “Time is what stops history happening at once; time is the speed at which the past disappears.”
  • "What wouldn't I give now for a never-changing map of the ever-constant ineffable? To possess, as it were, an atlas of clouds.”
  • “What is any ocean but a multitude of drops?”
  • “...now I'm a spent firework; but at least I've been a firework.”
  • “History admits no rules; only outcomes.”
  • "At best, you will exist a pariah to be spat at and beaten-at worst, to be lynched or crucified."
  • "All boundaries are conventions, waiting to be transcended."
  • "What if no one believes you?"
  • "Someone already does."
  • "I believe there is a another world waiting for us, Sixsmith. A better world. And I'll be waiting for you there."
  • "There is only one rule that binds all people. One governing principle that defines every relationship on God's green earth: The weak are meat, and the strong do eat."
  • "I believe we do not stay dead long. Find me beneath the Corsican stars where we first kissed."
  • "This world spins from the same unseen forces that twist our hearts."
  • "I will not be subjected to criminal abuse."
  • "Fear, belief, love phenomena that determined the course of our lives. These forces begin long before we are born and continue after we perish."
  • "Two sprained ankles, one cracked rib. Official cause of accident listed on the hospital form: Pussy."
  • "You have to do whatever you can't not do."
  • "I know, I know!"
  • "Blood has always trumped water."
  • "Don't leave me here!"
  • "If I had remained invisible, the truth would stay hidden. I couldn't allow that."

some boy from back in high school messaged me all ‘you’re up at 4am? :) you must be talking to someone you love…’

Via Actual Princess

Stop kissing him like he’s air and you cant breath
Because when he leaves your lungs will burn
only numbed by the pain in your heart

Stop needing him like he’s water and you’re in a desert
Because you’ll think you find him again and again
only to realise your own senses tricked you

Stop missing him like he’s heat and you’re freezing
Because you’ll try reaching out one last time
only to have your heart broken once again

I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.
