“I do not subscribe to the superstition that one’s understanding of an event alters the event. No, the event does the altering, and the question one faces is how to live with time’s brutal alteration. People invent gods, saints, and martyrs a lot of the time to prevent them from drinking what they are offered to drink from their own cup. To come up from that place where one thought one was dead means that one becomes greedy for life. And life is many things, but it is above all the touch of another. The touch of another, yes, no matter how transient, at no matter what price.”
