This just says it:
“I often recall these words when I am writing, and I think to myself, “It’s true. There aren’t any new words. Our job is to give new meanings and special overtones to absolutely ordinary words.” I find the thought reassuring. It means that vast, unknown stretches still lie before us, fertile territories just waiting for us to cultivate them.”
— Haruki Murakami, The Jazz Messenger
If I could be as cool as that guy, the film equivalent of that guy, I’d have it.
