Jon Krakauer says:


“You are wrong if you think Joy emanates only or principally from human relationships. God has placed it all around us. It is in everything and anything we might experience. We just have to have the courage to turn against our habitual lifestyle and engage in unconventional living.”


Simone De Beauvoir says:


“Two separate beings,
in different circumstances,
face to face in freedom
and seeking justification
of their existence
through one another,
will always live
an adventure
full of risk and promise.”
