“Most adults claim not to believe in magic, but Klara knows better. Why else would anyone play at permanence--fall in love, have children, buy a house--in the face of all evidence there's no such thing?”

“The cost of loneliness is high, she knows, but the cost of loss is higher.”
Chloe Benjamin, The Immortalists
