Quotes 

  • Kyoko : [after the rest of the family had left]  I think they should have stayed a bit longer.

    Noriko : But they're busy.

    Kyoko : They're selfish. Demanding things and leaving like this.

    Noriko : They have their own affairs.

    Kyoko : But you have yours too. They're selfish.

    Noriko : But Kyoko...

    Kyoko : Wanting her clothes right after her death. I felt so sorry for poor mother. Even strangers would have been more considerate!

    Noriko : But look Kyoko. At your age I thought so too. But children do drift away from their parents. A woman has her own life, apart from her parents, when she becomes Shige's age. She meant no harm I'm sure. They have to look after their own lives.

    Kyoko : I wonder: I won't ever be like that. Then what's the point of family?

    Noriko : But children become like that, gradually.

    Kyoko : Then... you, too?

    Noriko : I may become like that in spite of myself.

    Kyoko : Isn't life disappointing?

    Noriko : Yes, it is.

  • Tomi Hirayama : You may be happy while you're still young. But as you become older, you'll find it lonely.

    Noriko : I won't get that old, so don't worry.
