"It's so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone."I can't imagine what it must be like to have never had...anything...to begin with. I'm okay with the losing-it part, largely because we essentially have no choice. But that doesn't mean I'll ever get used to it.
John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent
This life thing isn't so easy, after all.
