"It is more difficult to love than to die. It is not death human beings are most afraid of, it is love. The heart is bigger than a mountain. One human life is deeper than the ocean . . . the whole of human history is an undiscovered continent deep in our souls . . . All roads lead to death, but some roads lead to things which can never be finished. Wonderful things. There are human beings who are small but if you SEE you will notice their spirit is ten thousand feet wide."
--The Famished Road, Ben Okri
