„A tak jsme tam nahoře na tom poli stáli celou věčnost, nic jsme neříkali, jen jsme se navzájem drželi, zatímco kolem nás fičel vítr, rval nám oblečení a chvilku to vypadalo, že tam tak stojíme a držíme se, protože to je jediný způsob jak zabránit tomu aby nás smetl do noci. -Neopouštěj mě“

„Občas člověk narazil na někoho, kdo se vyznával z lásky k jazzu, jenže nakonec se vždycky ukázalo, že dotyčný nezbožňuje pravý jazz, ale takzvanou fúzi - nekonečné improvizace bez špetky úcty k těm precizně cizelovaným skvostům, které posloužily jako výchozí materiál.“


„I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it's just too much. The current's too strong. They've got to let go, drift apart. That's how it is with us. It's a shame, Kath, because we've loved each other all our lives. But in the end, we can't stay together forever.“ Never Let Me Go

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

„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.“ Never Let Me Go

„Sometimes I get so immersed in my own company, if I unexpectedly run into someone I know, it's a bit of a shock and takes me a while to adjust.“ Never Let Me Go

„We took away your art because we thought it would reveal your souls. Or to put it more finely, we did it to prove you had souls at all.“ Never Let Me Go

„What I'm not sure about, is if our lives have been so different from the lives of the people we save. We all complete. Maybe none of us really understand what we've lived through, or feel we've had enough time.“ Never Let Me Go


„I half closed my eyes and imagined this was the spot where everything I'd ever lost since my childhood had washed up, and I was now standing here in front of it, and if I waited long enough, a tiny figure would appear on the horizon across the field and gradually get larger until I'd see it was Tommy, and he'd wave, and maybe even call.“ Never Let Me Go

„You have to accept that sometimes that's how things happen in this world. People's opinions, their feelings, they go one way, then the other. It just so happens you grew up at a certain point in this process.“ Never Let Me Go

„It was like when you make a move in chess and just as you take your finger off the piece, you see the mistake you've made, and there's this panic because you don't know yet the scale of disaster you've left yourself open to.“ Never Let Me Go

„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.“ Never Let Me Go


„You say you’re? Sure that you’re in love? How can you know it? You think love is so simple?“ Never Let Me Go

„All children have to be deceived if they are to grow up without trauma.“ Never Let Me Go

„All I know is that I've wasted all these years looking for something, a sort of trophy I'd get only if I really, really did enough to deserve it. But I don't want it anymore, I want something else now, something warm and sheltering, something I can turn to, regardless of what I do, regardless of who I become. Something that will just be there, always, like tomorrow's sky. That's what I want now, and I think it's what you should want too. But it will be too late soon. We'll become too set to change. If we don't take our chance now, another may never come for either of us.“ When We Were Orphans

„That was the only time, as I stood there, looking at that strange rubbish, feeling the wind coming across those empty fields, that I started to imagine just a little fantasy thing, because this was Norfolk after all, and it was only a couple of weeks since I’d lost him. I was thinking about the rubbish, the flapping plastic in the branches, the shore-line of odd stuff caught along the fencing, and I half-closed my eyes and imagined this was the spot where everything I'd ever lost since my childhood had washed up, and I was now standing here in front of it, and if I waited long enough, a tiny figure would appear on the horizon across the field, and gradually get larger until I'd see it was Tommy, and he'd wave, maybe even call. The fantasy never got beyond that --I didn't let it-- and though the tears rolled down my face, I wasn't sobbing or out of control. I just waited a bit, then turned back to the car, to drive off to wherever it was I was supposed to be.“ Never Let Me Go
