"He was still too young to know that the heart's memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good, and that thanks to this artifice we manage to endure the burden of the past." pg 106

"...and taught him the only thing he had to learn about love: that nobody teaches life anything."

LoLo beautiful!

first quote reminds me of a similar sentiment I recently came across in "A Fraction of the Whole" by Steve Toltz: "Memory may be the only thing on earth we can truly manipulate to serve us, so we don't have to look back at ourselves in the receding past and think, What an asshole!" ;)
