Literary Lines–October 18

“We are awfully lucky to be here–and by ‘we’ I mean every living thing.  To attain any kind of life in this universe of our appears to be quite an achievement.  As human we are doubly lucky, of course: We enjoy not only the privilege of existence but also the singular ability to appreciate it and even, in a multitude of ways, to make it better.  It is a talent we have only barely begun to grasp.”

–from A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
