life


Random quote of the day:

“The seeds that once were we take flight and fly,
Winnowed to earth, or whirled  along the sky,
Not lost but disunited. Life lives on.
It is the lives, the lives, the lives, that die.”

—Lucretius, Of the Nature of Things (tr.William Ellery Leonard)

Random quote of the day:

“A writer can have, ultimately, one of two styles: he can write in a manner that implies death is inevitable, or he can write in a manner that implies that death is not inevitable….If you write as if you believe that ultimately you and everyone else alive will be dead, there is a chance that you will write in a pretty earnest style. Otherwise you are apt to be either pompous or soft. On the other hand, in order not to be a fool, you must believe that as much as death is inevitable life is inevitable.

—William Saroyan, preface to The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze
