They always say you won’t remember the days, you will
remember the moments, that when you learn to ride a bike, you wont remember too
much of the falling down and the cuts and scrapes you got along the way, you’ll

the hill on your bike, and of course you’re going to fall, just make sure you
pick yourself back up."
I wish you were in this room with me right now. I wish I could put my arms around you. I wish I could touch you. Her (2013)
