“I’m getting used to this planet and to this curious human culture which is as cheerfully enthusiastic as it is cheerfully cruel.”

— Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

In any man who dies there dies with him
his first snow and kiss and fight….
Not people die but worlds die in them.

~Yevgeny Yevtushenko, “People”

 

“There is no remedy for death—or birth—except to hug the spaces in between. Live loud. Live wide. Live tall.”

—Jim Crace, Being Dead
