Frases indiscutivelmente verdadeiras

The disconcerting shadows of death

"Wasn't it obvious, simple and clear what their horror would consist of if, at this moment, they receive tidings of their impending death? I held the haggard face in the morning sun and thought: they simply want more of the stuff of their life, no matter how light or heavy, sparse or lush this life may be. They don't want it to end, even if they can no longer miss the absent life after the end - and know that."

in Mercier, Pascal. (2009) Night Train to Lisbom. Atlantic Books. London. Pág. 207
