“How much sweeter life would be if it all happened in reverse, if, after decades of disappointments, you finally arrived at an age when you had conceded nothing, when everything was possible.”
Karen Thompson Walker, The Age of Miracles

“The only thing you have to do in this life is die," said Mrs. Pinsky..."everything else is a choice.”
Karen Thompson Walker, The Age of Miracles

“Later, I would come to think of those first days as the time when we learned as a species that we had worried over the wrong things: the hole in the ozone layer, the melting of the ice caps, West Nile and swine flu and killer bees. But I guess it never is what you worry over that comes to pass in the end. The real catastrophes are always different—unimagined, unprepared for, unknown.”
Karen Thompson Walker, The Age of Miracles
