“There was another life that I might have had, but I am having this one.”
Kazuo Ishiguro

“Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don’t go along with that. The memories I value most, I don’t ever see them fading.”

“I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast.

Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go
