1+ Best Haruki Murakami Authors Quotes

Loneliness becomes an acid that eats away at you.

Haruki Murakami describes loneliness as an “acid that eats away at you”; others have described actual heart pain caused by loneliness. Studies show that loneliness is as harmful to health as obesity, smoking, and high blood pressure. Loneliness strikes people irrespective of age, sex, and culture—and it kills. Loneliness can also affect the brain, sometimes causing low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, neuroticism, and even schizophrenia and suicide.
