  2. This small history, my life, is wrapped so completely in you and memories of you that I no longer know which is my skin, which is yours, and which is ours. The covering is so flawless and perfect that there really is no difference any longer, not even under love’s careful and precise examination.

    I am a writer who came from a sheltered life. A sheltered life can be a daring life as well. For all serious daring starts from within.

  4. I want to see life. I want to hold it in my hands. I want to leave a footprint on the sand of a desert island. I want to play football with people. I want…I want everything.

  5. Face your life.
    Its pain, its pleasure,
    Leave no path untaken.

  6. An active literary life can make you more personally effective by keeping you relaxed and improving health.

    John Coleman, “Want to Be a Great Leader? Start Reading.”, Lifehacker.com/Harvard Business Review

    We applaud Lifehacker for encouraging people to read more, but they make it sound like a recommendation to eat 3-5 portions of vegetables every day.

    How much sweeter life would be if it all happened in reverse, if, after decades of disappointments, you finally arrived at an age when you had conceded nothing, when everything was possible.

    It is a small thing, this dear gift of life handed us mysteriously out of immensity.

  9. You can’t just think that disability is something that’s negative and even for those people living with disabilities, we can’t give them that escape route of saying ‘shame you’re disabled let’s put you in a corner’. You know, okay cool you’re disabled, get along with life.

    Life doesn’t make any sense, and we all pretend it does. Comedy’s job is to point out that it doesn’t make sense, and that it doesn’t make much difference anyway.
