Momoko's line

Momoko (桃子) 的媽媽要跟她沒用的老爸離婚,要嫁給當初生桃子時認識的婦產科醫生。桃子決定跟著沒用老爸,她媽媽跑去她上的小學想要說服她,並哭說,她放不下她的可愛女兒(桃子),還是不要離婚好了。結果桃子對著她媽竟然講出這樣的大道裡來:

To my fretfully weeping mother I said, "If someone's walking in the hills and discovers a seam of gold, I think if they walk away without digging it, they're just stupid. When something that lucky happens to you, thinking it's unfair for you to strike it rich all by yourself doesn't mean you're selfless. When great happiness unexpectedly swoops down on people, they suddenly turn into cowards. Snatching happiness takes a lot more courage than enduring unhappiness. When you find something precious, you have to hold on to it with all your might and never let it go, whatever else you may lose. After all, there are lots of people who die without ever finding something that's really precious to them. So don't blow your big chance." (p.26-7)
