Certain thoughts, emotions and situations have been verbalized perfectly by songwriters, authors and philosophers. It seems to be almost impossible to find better expressions. 'Borrowed thoughts' is a personal collection of these phrases: excerpts of song lyrics, citations from books, writing used in films, in English, Japanese or German. 'Borrowed thoughts' is inscribed onto Japanese paper called shikishi which was traditionally used for poetry, but has come to be used for collecting autographs of celebrities, among other purposes.
