‘But death, too, had the power to awe, she knew this now – that a human being could be alive for years and years, thinking and breathing and eating, full of a million worries and feelings and thoughts, taking up space in the world, and then, in an instant, become absent, invisible.’

– Jhumpa Lahiri, Unaccustomed Earth
