"When you lose someone, it feels like the hole in your gum when a tooth falls out. You can chew, you can eat, you have plenty of other teeth, but your tongue keeps going back to that empty place, where all nerves are still a little raw."

- Jodi Picoult, House Rules

Reading this today (on Boxing Day):

"We do not live to eat & make money.
We eat & make money to be able to enjoy life.
That is what life means & what life is for.
And joy, is after all, the end of life."

- George Mallory on the sheer joy of climbing Mt Everest.
