'Does pain go away and leave no trace, then?'
'You sometimes even feel sentimental for it.' ― Yasunari Kawabata, Thousand Cranes
“Time passed. But time flows in many streams. Like a river, an inner stream of time will flow rapidly at some places and sluggishly at others, or perhaps even stand hopelessly stagnant. Cosmic time is the same for everyone, but human time differs with each person. Time flows in the same way for all human beings; every human being flows through time in a different way.”
― Yasunari Kawabata, Beauty and Sadness
"You've always been fond of understanding people too well."
"They should arrange not to be understood quite so easily."
― Yasunari Kawabata, Thousand Cranes
