“I felt, that night, on that stage, under that skull,
but also extremely alone.
I wondered, for the first time in my life:
if life was worth all the work it took to live?
What exactly made it worth it?
What's so horrible about being dead forever?
And not feeling anything? And not even dreaming?
What's so great about feeling and dreaming?”
- Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
