“When I watched you dancing that day, I saw something else. I saw a new world coming rapidly. More scientific…more cures for the old sickness…good, but a harsh, cruel world. And I saw a little girl, her eyes tightly closed, holding to her breast the old kind world, one that she knew in her heart could not remain, and she was holding it and pleading, never let her go. That is what I saw. It wasn’t really you, what you were doing, I know that. But I saw you and it broke my heart. And I’ve never forgotten.”

-Kazuo Ishiguro
