Alessandro Baricco

It pained him to hear Hervé Joncour softly saying, in conclusion:
“I have never even heard her voice.”

And a while later:
“It is a strange sort of pain.”

Softly.
“To die of yearning for something you’ll never experience.”

— Alessandro Baricco, Silk. Published by Rizzoli (editore.) Published in English (1996.)
