“Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.”
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Robert Frost
“Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.

But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice

And would suffice.”
Robert Frost

Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
