Thursday Quotables: Lips Too Chilled


Hello, everyone! Welcome to Thursday Quotables! This weekly feature is hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies. Every week we highlight a great quote, line, or passage discovered during your reading each week.


Today I'll share you a few haikus from the book Lips Too Chilled (2014) by Matsuo Basho. They are all so simple and beautiful. I love them.





Have you read any haikus? Which one is your favourite?

  2. Talk about an efficient use of words. Haikus are interesting because they say a lot in a very small space. It goes to show that more isn't always better. Or rather:

    Efficient words. Haikus say much in a small space. More isn't better.

    1. Yes. I've always found it very difficult to create one, I admire those who can. How can you convey so many things with such simple words and in only three lines?

    1. Aren't they? Although I like Japanese literature a lot, I hadn't read any actual haikus. So this book helped me fix that :)
