Quote #10

[Clare:] It is only memory that holds me here. Time, let me vanish. Then what we separate by our very presence can come together. (3.4.5)

It's Clare's memory of her past with Henry that keeps her waiting for him, grieving over him. With no consciousness of the past, she'd be able to move on.
