Osamu Dazai Quote: “The weak fear happiness itself. They can harm themselves on cotton wool. Sometimes they are wounded even by happiness.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Now I have neither happiness nor unhappiness. Everything passes. That is the one and only thing that I have thought resembled a truth in the society of human beings where I have dwelled up to now as in a burning hell. Everything passes.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “For someone like myself in whom the ability to trust others is so cracked and broken that I am wretchedly timid and am forever trying to read the expression on people’s faces.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Mine has been a life of much shame. I can’t even guess myself what it must be to live the life of a human being.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “As long as I can make them laugh, it doesn’t matter how, I’ll be alright. If I succeed in that, the human beings probably won’t mind it too much if I remain outside their lives. The one thing I must avoid is becoming offensive in their eyes: I shall be nothing, the wind, the sky.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Last year nothing happened The year before nothing happened And the year before that nothing happened.”

Osamu Dazai Quote: “Victims. Victims of a transitional period of morality. That is what we both certainly are.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “All I feel are the assaults of apprehension and terror at the thought that I am the only one who is entirely unlike the rest. It is almost impossible for me to converse with other people. What should I talk about, how should I say it? – I don’t know.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “The weak fear happiness itself.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “I want to spend my time with people who don’t look to be respected. But such good people won’t want to spend their time with me.”

Osamu Dazai Quote: “It would seem that the more irresponsible and crafty one is, the more likely one is to have a talent for storytelling.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Whenever I was asked what I wanted my first impulse was to answer “Nothing.” The thought went through my mind that it didn’t make any difference, that nothing was going to make me happy.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “The world, after all, was still a place of bottomless horror. It was by no means a place of childlike simplicity where everything could be settled by a simple then-and-there decision.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “I also have the impression that many women have been able, instinctively, to sniff out this loneliness of mine, which I confided to no one, and this in later years was to become one of the causes of my being taken advantage of.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “The real things are apt to be deviant.”

Osamu Dazai Quote: “When I acted like a liar, they called me a liar. When I acted like a rich man, they started the rumor I was rich.

The world is out of joint.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Virtue and vice are concepts invented by human beings, words for a morality which human beings arbitrarily devised.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “I thought, “I want to die. I want to die more than ever before. There’s no chance now of a recovery. No matter what sort of thing I do, no matter what I do, it’s sure to be a failure, just a final coating applied to my shame. That dream of going on bicycles to see a waterfall framed in summer leaves – it was not for the likes of me. All that can happen now is that one foul, humiliating sin will be piled on another, and my sufferings will become only the more acute. I want to die. I must die. Living itself is the source of sin.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “I wonder if I have ever actually been happy. People have told me, really more times than I can remember, ever since I was a small boy, how lucky I was, but I have always felt as if I were suffering in hell. It has seemed to me in fact that those who called me lucky were incomparably more fortunate than I.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “I can’t even guess myself what it must be to live the life of a human being.”

Osamu Dazai Quote: “I shall be nothing, the wind, the sky.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Disqualified as a human beings. I had now ceased utterly to be a human beings.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Living itself is the source of sin.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Love flies out the window when poverty comes in the door, they say, and it’s true.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “I should have died sooner. But there was one thing: Mama’s love. When I thought of that I couldn’t die. It’s true, as I have said, that just as man has the right to live as he chooses, he has the right to die when he pleases, and yet as long as my mother remained alive, I felt that the right to death would have to be left in abeyance, for to exercise it would have meant killing her too.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “In my case such an expression as ‘to be fallen for’ or even ‘to be loved’ is not in the least appropriate; perhaps it describes the situation more accurately to say that I was ’looked after.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Real thought takes courage more than intelligence.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “I have always found the female of the human species many times more difficult to understand than the male.”

Osamu Dazai Quote: “Not long ago I learned from a certain person in considerable detail about the worthlessness of your character. All the same, it is you who have given me strength, you who have put the rainbow of revolution in my breast. It is you who have given an object to my life.”
Osamu Dazai Quote: “Nevertheless, I still wait for someone. Who on earth am I waiting for, sitting here everyday? For what sort of person? Maybe what I’m waiting for isn’t even a human. I dislike humans. No, I fear them. When I meet someone and indifferently exchange such greetings as ‘How are you?’ or ‘It’s become cold’, greetings I don’t want to make, I somehow get the unpleasant feeling that there is no such horrible liar in the whole world as I, and I wish I were dead.”
