The thoughts you loved to think about, the memories you wanted to hold up to the light and view from every angle–it suddenly seems a lot safer to lock them in a box, far from the light of day and throw away the key. It’s not an act of bitterness. It’s an act if self-preservation. It’s not always a bad idea to stay behind the window and look out at life instead, is it?”

Yet Its Impulse To Exist, To Be , Is Every Bit As Strong As Ours-Arguably Even Stronger. If I Were Told That I Had To Spend Decades Being A Furry Growth On A Rock In The Woods, I Believe I Would Lose The Will To Go On. Lichens Don’t. Like Virtually All Living Things, They Will Suffer Any Hardship, Endure Any Insult, For A Moment’s Additions Existence. Life, In Short Just Wants To Be.” – Bill Bryson
