So you have to accept facts as fact.

The flow of time cleanses the past and heals the wounds in people's hearts. But there are wounds we cant speak of.

Mrs. Darling loved to have everything just so, and Mr. Darling had a passion for being exactly like his neighbours; so, of course, they had a nurse. As they were poor, owing to the amount of milk the children drank, this nurse was a prim Newfoundland dog, called Nana, who had belonged to no one in particular until the Darlings engaged her. She had always thought children important, however, and the Darlings had become acquainted with her in Kensington Gardens, where she spent most of her spare time peeping into perambulators, and was much hated by careless nursemaids, whom she followed to their homes and complained of to their mistresses. She proved to be quite a treasure of a nurse.

I have the right to be hated.(Takumi)

Hachi    Manga    Nana    Takumi

Are you living everyday so that even if the end were to come you’d have to regrets?

Sometimes isn’t it better to have some time and space to ourselves? We will have new perception of things.

For us who choose our dreams over our love the only thing we can do for love is perhaps to release the lock around our necks. Through that, the pain may vanish.

You know Hachi, your life depends only on ourselves. I’m still convinced about this… But I’ve also learned to accept that people… don’t all become as strong, and it made me kinder than before.

When dawn comes, that memory gradually distances...Tonight, I will bring it to sleep with me, so that will not be taken away by the waves of the night...

Pops: Plans for the future?
Justin: Not sure yet.
Pops: Well, why not? You don't got much longer in school, boy. Now's the time to figure things out, not later. Didn't anyone ever tel you that you can't spell later without the word late?
Justin: I promise you, I'm doing my best to figure things out.
Pops: "Doing my best" is a phrase failures use. Why don't you buy a man card and finish figuring?
Me: Pops! That's so rude. Justin, I'm so sorry.
Pops: What? How is a valid question rude? But all right, fine, I'll move on since baby boy can't take the heat. How about you finish this sentence for me, Jason? When a girl says no, she means...
Justin, looking desperately at me: No?
Nana: Are you not sure?
Justin, shifting uncomfortably: I'm sure. No means no.
Nana: Well, look at you. You got no right. Now here's another, even tougher sentence for you to finish. Premarital sex is...
Me: Nana! I'm so sorry, Justin.
Nana: Unlike Pops, I'm not moving on, Justin?
Pops: His name is Jason.
Justin: Uh...uh...
Pops: While you think about that, why don't you tell me how you feel about drinking and driving?
Justin: I'm totatlly against it, I swear!
Nana: Methinks he protests too much.

It takes a lot of strength to hold onto and care for the things we love, so why is it that god seems to have made humans unable to conjure up that degree of power and love?

The table was her stage. The mobile phone was the microphone. And the new moon was the spotlight. That kind of magic only Nana could make it happen.

Say, Nana... You look like stray cat, wild and proud. But I can see the wound in your heart. At the time I just thought it was cool. I never realized how hurt you were.

I’ll die if you go. The Jinn will come, and I’ll have one of my fits. You’ll see, I’ll swallow my tongue and die. Don’t leave me, Mariam jo. Please stay. I’ll die if you go.

Tell me, Nana,
If for example we had been a love couple,
Would a hug have been enough to wash away my sadness?
Or then; does every single being carry this loneliness, like a burden?
I wans't intending to monopolizing you
I just wanted you to need me.
