Tere Liye
“Cara terbaik menghadapi masa lalu adalah dengan dihadapi. Berdiri gagah. Mulailah dengan damai menerima masa lalumu. Buat apa dilawan? Dilupakan? Itu sudah menjadi bagian dari hidup kita.

Disiram oleh waktu, dipoles oleh kenangan baru yang lebih bahagia.
Apakah mudah melakukannya? Itu sulit. Tapi bukan berarti mustahil.”

"But I am not at all lonely."
"Youth is the loneliest time of all. Otherwise, why should you come so often to my house?"
Sensei continued: "But surely, when you are with me, you cannot rid yourself of your loneliness. I have not it in me to help you forget it. You will have to look elsewhere for the consolation you seek. And soon, you will find that you no longer want to visit me."
As he said this, Sensei smiled sadly.”

"Of course not, Soda Pop. And don't listen to labels. They don't matter."

"What are labels?"
