“I know (what longing would bring). Each time I long for it, I don’t know where it’s going to take me and it dreads me but I still miss it” -Grim Reaper-
“Birth Grandmother: ‘Why didn’t you create a perfect world without a sin (in the first place)?’
Deity: ‘Nobody would look for the almighty!’

“The world needs miracles – beautiful & strange miracles” -Ji Eun Tak-
“How could you tell me to only remember the happy times but (to) forget you? Because every moment I spent with you was a happy one, even if each and every moment with you was also sad & difficult. So did my dying to protect you become your happy ending?” -Sunny-
“Meeting you was the reward of my life” -Kim Shin-
“I’ll try asking God to let me come back with the first snowfall of the season” -Kim Shin-

“Now I see what choice I made… I will remain here and become rain. I will become the wind. I will become the first snowfall… I ask for your permission just for that one thing.” -Kim Shin-

“Don’t you think oblivion is the deity’s way of showing grace? So you won’t fall in agony” -‘lil boy-
“To the one who thought that oblivion would bring me peace of mind, the moment our eyes met I knew that you too retained your memories. Hence in this life, we”ll have to live in each of our happy endings and ignore this tragedy. I pray that in our next life the wait will be short and the meeting will be long. That we won’t need an excuse to see each other – entitled with our own dearest names so we would greet each other when we accidentally run into each other with out love always be the solution. I pray we can meet like this.” -Sunny-
“Sometimes you are Kim Woo Bin, sometimes you’re Wang Yeo. Please live a long & happy life.” -Sunny-

I will be the bride of this lonely man.
I will be the first & the last bride of this beautiful man.” -Ji Eun Tak-

“Give me a little more time, I will do my best to grow up” -Deok Hwa-

“Maybe this punishment ends when we become desperate for life” -Grim Reaper-
“Every human dies at some point, that’s why life is even more beautiful… The first thought I had once I got my memory back was to live each day as if it were my last. If today is my last day, this will be my final memory of the person I love so I’d better live hard and love” -Ji Eun Tak-
“Kim Shin: Until death parts us, every word that you say whatever it may be… me too.
Ji Eun Tak: Until death parts us, every word that you say whatever it may be… me too.”
“A human’s sacrifice is something the almighty cannot predict. It wasn’t a part of his plan that’s because it’s a momentary instinct and a choice that solely made by that human. It is a choice only humans can make” -Grim Reaper-
“Do you remember what I said before? The person left behind has to live (his life) to the fullest. You’ll cry sometimes but you’ll also laugh & live bravely – that’s the proper response to the love given to you” -Ji Eun Tak-

“I’ll be gone for just a while. I promise. This time, I will come to you. I will come looking for you. In our next life, I will make sure to be born with a long life and stay by your side for a long time. I will beg divinity to let me do that” -Ji Eun Tak-
“You have to come even if it takes 100 or 200 years, I’ll wait for you!” -Kim Shin-

“Some people shine later on in life” -Mechanic-
“Every life is touched by a deity at least once. Just when you’re drifting away from the world, if someone nudges you back in the right direction, that’d be when the deity chooses to visit you” -Kim Shin-
“As I sent the lantern flying that night, I prayed that my sister in her future and my master in his future would meet again one day. And when they meet again, they will be happy. That’d be my wish” -Kim Shin-
