Haibane renmei quotes

Reki: You're free, and now I'm alone.

Rakka: I still wonder... what the Haibane are. Everyone says that both the walls and this town exist for the Haibane. But, the charcoal feathers are born into this world suddenly, and just as suddenly they disappear. I don't know the reason why I became a Haibane. I'm here, I can't remember anything about who I was. And if I am to disappear someday without accomplishing anything, what's the meaning of my existence?
Reki: You know, at one time, I felt the same way as you. I think there is a meaning, but only YOU can find it.

Rakka: Reki, I'll never forget you.

Rakka: We're not human, are we?
Reki: Nobody knows exactly what we are... if we're human or not. We call ourselves the Haibane, which means 'charcoal feathers'.
Rakka: I wanna go home!
Reki: The Haibane are not allowed to go outside of town. It is our most sacred law. Besides, even if your family were somewhere in this world, they wouldn't recognize you if they saw you now.
Rakka: But why?
Reki: Just as you cannot remember the world that you used to be in, there is nobody in this world who can remember you.

Rakka: Can you tell me where I am? And what's Haibane?

Rakka: Somewhere, that's not here, in a place I can't remember, I was obsessed with the idea that I was all alone. I thought that nobody would care, or even miss me if I vanished from the face of the Earth. I wanted to disappear. Then I had a dream about falling from the sky. I just remember that the bird was in the dream with me, and that the bird was someone in the form of a bird, trying to call me back. I now know that I was never alone. But I...
Communicator: You should not think of it in such a way. Your wings and halo are proof that you have no sin to be atoned for in this world.
Rakka: But you don't understand! My feathers are...
Communicator: So, you are sin bound. Hiding the signs of your sin by dyeing your feathers with medicine. Who showed you how?
Rakka: ...
Communicator: I see.
Rakka: What do you mean by 'sin bound'? Are you saying I'm a sinner? And does that mean... that the dream was real?
Communicator: There is no way to be certain. Whatever you lost dreaming inside your cocoon can never be retrieved. Even if you heard someone, you will never see that person again.

Reki: They'll never know how very dark and very cold my heart is.
Rakka: STOP that! There's no way I can believe that! You've always been so kind!
Reki: Rakka, I guess you never really understood. You never saw how jealous I was of you.
Rakka: No...
Reki: Both of us sin bound. But in the end, only you were forgiven. Everyone leaves me eventually. When Kuu took her Day of Flight, part of me was jealous of her. And I hate myself for it.
Rakka: THAT'S NOT TRUE! YOU CAME LOOKING FOR ME WHEN I FELL INTO THE WELL! YOU TOOK CARE OF ME, WENT TO GET MEDICINE FOR ME! WHENEVER I WAS IN PAIN YOU WERE ALWAYS THERE FOR ME!
Reki: THAT's RIGHT! And why'de I do it? I was LOOKING for my salvation! I can only forget about my sin when I'm being useful to someone! And the only thought that I had the whole time I was helping you... was that maybe God would come down and FINALLY forgive me!
Rakka: (crying) Stop it! Stop it!
Reki: (coldly) Rakka... for what I needed, you could've been anybody.
