"A bird foraging for food in the swamps and marshes sinks rapidly if it doesn't move. It has to keep pulling its feet out of the mire to move on, regardless of whether it has caught something or not. And the same applies to us and to our love. We have to move on, we can't stay where we are, because we'll sink."
— Milorad Pavić (Dictionary of the Khazars)
With time my memory of the passages in the book fades and I don't think I will re-read the book again. I may be disappointed with my second round and I don't want that to happen.
Sometimes, our memories are better off if left untouched by the fickle finger of reality.
