Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

  • Can't keep on with the same stuff all the time. Gets boring.
  • It doesn't really matter how well your guardians try to prepare you: all the talks, videos, discussions, warnings, none of that can really bring it home.
  • 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.
  • It was up to each of us to make of our lives what we could.
  • If students were reared in humane, cultivated environments, it was possible for them to grow to be as sensitive and intelligent.
  • The memories I value most, I don't see them ever fading.
