Osamu Dazai Quote: I must go on living. And, though it may be childish of me, I can't go on in simple compliance. From now on I must struggle with the world.

Osamu Dazai Saying: I soon came to understand that drink, tobacco and prostitutes were all great means if dissipating (even for a few moments) my dread for human beings. I came even to feel that if I had to sell every last possession to obtain these means of escape, it would be well worth it.

Sayings about Osamu Dazai: I have always shook with fright before human beings.
