Quotes by Kyōichi Katayama  (?)

“It’s not the parting or the absence that’s sad. You love them, and that’s why saying good-bye breaks your heart.”
Kyoichi Katayama, Socrates In Love

“I wished the dream were real, and this reality a dream. But that wasn't the case. And that was why, whenever I woke up, I'd be crying. It wasn't because I was sad. When you return from a happy dream to sad reality, there's a chasm you have to step across, and you can't cross it without shedding tears. It doesn't matter how many times you do it.”
kyoichi katayama

“A world without you is unknown to me. I don't even know if it exists.”
Kyōichi Katayama, Socrates In Love
