“I was eleven then, and hadn’t listened to much music, but this one song, it really got to me. I always tried to keep the tape wound to just that spot so I could play the song whenever a chance came by.” — Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go.
“He screams, and there’s nothing. No one rescues him. He gets held very tightly by someone he loves, and I think that’s what Ishiguro is trying to say: We have very short time here, and love as much as you can, and love as many people as you can. Hold on to the people who mean something. I think that’s a microcosm of what he’s talking about. It’s very simplistic. People say it’s much deeper or richer than that, but if you wanted to sum it up, you could probably sum it up in that way.” - Andrew Garfield
“It had never occurred to me that our lives, which had been so closely interwoven, could unravel with such speed. If I’d known, maybe I’d have kept tighter hold of them and not let unseen tides pull us apart.” -Never Let Me Go
It had never occurred to me that our lives, which had been so closely interwoven, could unravel with such speed. If I’d known, maybe I’d have kept tighter hold of them and not let unseen tides pull us apart.
“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.”

watching this before going to sleep was a horrible idea
There are no deferrals, Tommy.
#kathy’s quiet resignation and acceptance + tommy’s slow understanding = a deadly combination
This scene should be called tears. Because its amazingly sad what happens. Too much to handle.
