“We must eat, drink, sleep, be idle, have sex, love, touch the sweetest things in life and yet not succumb to them.”
Lauren Redniss, Radioactive: Marie and Pierre Curie, A Tale of Love and Fallout

“In the wake of a human being's death, what survives is a set of afterglows, some brighter and some dimmer, in the collective brains of those who were dearest to them...Though the primary brain has been eclipsed, there is, in those who remain...a collective corona that still glows. - Douglas Hofstadter”
Lauren Redniss, Radioactive: Marie and Pierre Curie, A Tale of Love and Fallout
