“It was all right to be sad. It was all right to lament. It was all right to feel anger. But [is] not all right to run away.”
Miyuki Miyabe, Ico: Castle in the Mist

“As long as there is happiness, there will be sadness. As long as there is fortune, there will be misfortune.
“…What’s real is something that not even the strength of the Goddess can change. The only one who can change it is me. If I don’t change my destiny, if I don’t cut through the obstacles in my path, then no matter where I go, I’ll always be standing in the same place, doing the same thing over and over again, for the rest of my life.”
Miyuki Miyabe, Brave Story

“Mistakes were mistakes, and failures were failures. Why torment someone with memories of their past?”
Miyuki Miyabe, Ico: Castle in the Mist
