8 notes "It never occurred to me that our lives, until then so closely interwoven, could unravel and separate over a thing like that. But the fact was, I suppose, there were powerful tides tugging us apart by then, and it only needed something like that to finish the task. If we’d understood that back then-who knows?-maybe we’d have kept a tighter hold of one another." — Kazuo Ishiguro

18 notes "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." — Kazuro Ishiguro
2 notes "What did our spectre-blinded searching reach
Or wake to, that was worth it?
Happiness
Appeared — momentary,
Peered in at your window
Like a wild migrant, an oriole,
A tanager, a humming-bird — pure American,
Blown scraps of the continent’s freedom —
But off course and gone
Before we could identify it." — Ted Hughes
5 notes "What happens in the heart simply happens." — Ted Hughes
2 notes "Juggling hopes and fantasy, human and anxious." — Ted Hughes
0 notes "A glare chunk of moon.
The hill no colour
Under the polarized light.
Like a day pushed inside out. Everything
In negative." — Ted Hughes
