Erich Maria Remarque

But I also knew that there was no going back. One can never go back; nothing and no one is ever the same. All that remained was an occasional evening of sadness, the sadness that we all feel because everything passes and because man is the only animal who knows it. — Erich Maria Remarque, Shadows in Paradise, (Random House Trade Paperbacks 1998) Originally published 1971.
