“Nobody truly becomes an adult. The child we have been is always there, deep inside of us. As time passes, we think we're growing, but maturity is only an illusion; a hindrance to our free child soul.”
Jirō Taniguchi

“My hometown... was always there, at all times, unchanging. What I think... is not that we go back to our hometowns, but that someday our hometowns come back into each of our hearts.”
Jirō Taniguchi, A Journal Of My Father

“Uno no vuelve a su tierra... sino que es la propia tierra la que, un día, regresa a los corazones de cada uno de nosotros.”
Jirō Taniguchi, El almanaque de mi padre
