“Death brings meaning to life: our lives—our bodies—are nourished by the death of plants and animals.  Be clear: Our deaths will one day serve as nourishment for them.” –Simon Buxton

“Sometimes we love with nothing more than hope. Sometimes we cry with everything except tears. In the end that’s all there is: love and its duty, sorrow and its truth. In the end that’s all we have – to hold on tight until the dawn”
― Gregory David Roberts

“To stay with the shakiness—to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feeling of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge—that is the path of true awakening.  Sticking with the uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos, learning not to panic—this is the spiritual path.”  –Pema Chodron

“Perhaps it’s true that things can change in a day. That a few dozen hours can affect the outcome of whole lifetimes. And that when they do, those few dozen hours, like the salvaged remains of a burned house—the charred clock, the singed photograph, the scorched furniture—must be resurrected from the ruins and examined. Preserved. Accounted for. Little events, ordinary things, smashed and reconstituted. Imbued with new meaning. Suddenly they become the bleached bones of a story.”
― Arundhati Roy
