Life is far too big for us, but this is because we live it so, in a big way. There is no time or concessions for anything halfway, it is always everything even when it is nothing. From these precious moments in which life is calmer we have no memory, just the feeling of peace.
For a human being, every fellow men should have imprinted on his brow a warning saying: “Very fragile, handle with care.” If it were not like this, if we all thought we are invulnerable and everlasting like Gods, who would worry about how to deal with everybody else? (F. Savater)
