They’re not like compact discs or even phonograph records. These are things that had their day and they were replaced. You can say that you’ve seen the same progression with books in that e-books have a lot of nice bells and whistles. But the big difference is that audio recordings of music have only been around for, I’m going to say, 120 years at the most. Books have been around for three, four centuries. There’s a deeply implanted desire and understanding and wanting of books, of needing books, that isn’t there with music. It’s a deeper well of human experience.

— Haruki Murakami, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage  (via afternoon—-tea)

People are more than you think they are. And they’re less, as well. The trick lies in negotiating your way between the two.
