Ко́бо А́бэ , наст. имя — А́бэ Кимифуса; 7 марта 1924, Кита, Токио, Японская империя — 22 января 1993, Токио, Япония — японский писатель, драматург и сценарист, один из лидеров японского послевоенного авангарда в искусстве. Основная тема творчества — поиск человеком собственной идентичности в современном мире.

„Печаль делает чай вкуснее.“

„С горной вершины даже бурное море кажется гладкой равниной.“


„Я убеждён, что люди изобрели одежду не из-за утраты волосяного покрова, а, осознав своё безобразие, постарались скрыть его с помощью одежды.“

„Самое противное — думать, что если жизнь вот так и будет идти?.. Что это за жизнь? Этого ведь никто не знает... Эх, лучше быть по горло заваленным работой и не думать обо всём этом.“

„Loneliness was an unsatisfied thirst for illusion.“ The Woman in the Dunes

„When I look at small things, I think I shall go on living: drops of rain, leather gloves shrunk by being wet... When I look at something too big, I want to die: the Diet Building, or a map of the world...“ The Box Man

„The most frightening thing in the world is to discover the abnormal in that which is closest to us.“

„Do you shovel to survive, or survive to shovel?“ The Woman in the Dunes


„One could not do without repetition in life, like the beating of the heart, but it was also true that the beating of the heart was not all there was to life.“ The Woman in the Dunes

„There wasn't a single item of importance [in the newspaper]. A tower of illusion, all of it, made of illusory bricks and full of holes. If life were made up only of imporant things, it really would be a dangerous house of glass, scarcely to be handled carelessly. But everyday life was exactly like the headlines. And so everybody, knowing the meaninglessness of existence, sets the centre of his compass at his own home.“ The Woman in the Dunes

„You don't need me. What you really need is a mirror. Because any stranger is for you simply a mirror in which to reflect yourself. I don't ever again want to return to such a desert of mirrors.“ The Face of Another

„Being free always involves being lonely.“


„Everyone has his own philosophy that doesn't hold good for anybody else.“ The Woman in the Dunes

„Still, the one who best understands the significance of light is not the electrician, not the painter, not the photographer, but the man who lost his sight in adulthood. There must be the wisdom of deficiency in deficiency, just as there is the wisdom of plenty in plenty.“ The Face of Another

„Suddenly a sorrow the color of dawn welled up in him. They might as well lick each other's wounds. But they would lick forever, and the wounds would never heal, and in the end their tongues would be worn away.“

„Only the happy ones return to contentment. Those who were sad return to despair.“ The Woman in the Dunes
