Nel by Dalih Sembiring
“Hal-hal yang dulu diatur oleh orang tua kita menjadi serangkaian kebiasaan, seperti urutan yang kau biasakan ketika memakai sepatu: kaus kaki kanan lalu kaus kaki kiri, sepatu kanan lalu sepatu kiri. Lantas kejadian-kejadian memberimu sifat dan pendirian. Kemudian ada kenangan-kenangan indah. Kita menyimpannya dengan harapan kelak bisa terulang.”
