Slow and Steady Wins the Race by Ken Price
“Human beings are capable of becoming perfectly pure at some moment in their lives. It doesn’t matter if they’re royalty or literati, middle class, working class, or the lowest class. For many people that moment must be the moment when they are clasping hands with each other. Memory finds its way back through blood, through body heat. Right at that moment. But now is not that moment. Right now doesn’t mean anything at all.
…time repeated itself. It outlived memory… and it would be no different in the future.”
Nowhere To Be Found by Bae Suah translated by Sora Kim-Russell
