Life and death quote

10 Oct

The reason death sticks so closely to life isn`t biological necessity- it`s envy. Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

    LOL Only a living person would say this:) We have no idea how spectacular death might be…none at all.
