That's Rin's, I guess.

I always figured it was Hisao's because it's on the main page of KS and it is one of the main problems that he is dealing with throughout the entire story. Rin's would be more along the lines of understanding self-identity like... "Can you accept yourself?" or something.

Hisao: It's not a secret club being a guy.
Kenji: It should be. With rings. Rings with big ass emblems. And gold!

Not really. She doesn't have arms. Ergo she can't seize the day. Although nobody can literally seize the day. But you get my point.

actually, all of the girl's catchphrases rotate on the main page of KS. just refresh the page and you'll find the others. remember, all of the phrases have a bit of a double meaning. Since Rin can't "seize" something in the normal sense(cause of, y'know, lack of hands. Dextrous feet don't count :P), and also because she is afraid of the changes she begins feelings in her route, about how she wants to go back to the past.

Huh, never noticed that they changed.

If we are going by the quotes on the front page, wouldn't "Can you tell me what you think?" be more suited to Rin? (Or maybe Shizune with her deafness and all)

Can you "seize the day" seems more like something that would correlate with Shizune's busy body nature and drive to be the best.

"Can you seize the day" -Shizune? (or possibly Emi)
"Can you tell me what you think?" -Rin (or possibly Lilly)
"Can you face your fears?" -Hanako (or possibly Emi)
"Can you see what I see?" -Lilly (or possibly Rin)
"Can you stand up for yourself?" -Emi (or possibly Hanako)

The phrases are more of a pun than of thoughtful remarks about the girls.
While we are here discussing, Hanako is somewhere hopping from dark to darker tiles. Alone.

you're pretty close. "Can you tell me what you think"? is Shizune, while "Can you seize the day?" is Rin. If you click on the phrase, it takes you to the character page with the girl whose phrase matches them.

you sure? I've only completed Rin and Emi's paths, but their phrases each match them pretty well, physically and emotionally. also, as well as the disabilities are presented in this game, I doubt the developers would make such distasteful jokes about them.

Point taken. Maybe that's how they built the girls' personalities?

"Can you catch 'em all?" -Hisao
It's kinda funny, I've played a bunch of VN's and for the first time I'm feeling apprehensive about going down another path. I'm thinking weird crap like how will Hanako ever be happy if someones not there for her.......
If Hanako's writer reads this I want you to know that I thank you for giving me this wonderful treasure.

I guess he doesn't get one because he's the player character, the one you make the decisions for but if he had one it wouldn't be directed to the players like the girls were but directed to the girls themselves.

Can you let me heal your heart?

They are thoughtful remarks about the girls that are also puns.

Anyway yeah "Can you trust your heart?" is pretty much what I think would fit Hisao.
100% completion!
Whatever you do, be safe!

I'm glad to know that people approve of my suggestion. It makes me glad I didn't go with something like "Can you go the distance?" That was the first one that popped into my head, but then I spent at least ten more minutes wracking my brain to arrive at "Can you trust your heart?"

Of course, the VERY first one that popped into my head was the "Can youHNNNNG!"
100% Complete.
So here's my ranking:
Hanako>Lilly>Rin>=Emi>Shizune
