“Death is a strange thing. People live their whole lives as if it does not exist, and yet it’s often one of the greatest motivations for living. Some of us, in time, become so conscious of it that we live harder, more obstinately, with more fury. Some need its constant presence to even be aware of its antithesis. Others become so preoccupied with it that they go into the waiting room long before it has announced its arrival. We fear it, yet most of us fear more than anything that it may take someone other than ourselves. – Fredrick Backman”
truest lines i have read in a while.
from the book ‘a man called ove’. it’s a new york times best-seller and i can’t wait to begin reading it.
i’ve said this before but nothing beats the feeling of having just finished a great book.
