“When gorillas smell danger, they run around and call out to the rest of the primates in the jungle to warn them something evil is coming. And when one of their own dies, they mourn for days while beating themselves up in sadness for failing to save that gorilla, even if the cause of death was natural. And when one colony is mourning, their chilling echoes migrate to other colonies — and those neighbors, even if they are territorial rivals, will also grieve with them. When faced with a common danger, rivals turn into allies. And when faced with death, the loss of just one gorilla becomes the loss of the entire jungle.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“He drew in an answering breath, and she waited to hear the quip, the joke, the dab of levity for the most intense moment they’d ever shared. But he only dropped his head into the crook of her neck and laid his mouth over her leaping pulse as they found their unhurried rhythm in the dark.”

She swallowed thickly, the hand against his chest beginning to sweat. “I-I’m busy.”

“You’re gonna be,” he said, smiling. “Need to know what bed you’re gonna be in, though. Bringing my A game.”

“Lily?”

She couldn’t see his face, but she knew his eyes were on her. She could feel them.

A beat passed. Then another. He flicked the flashlight on, his eyes zooming in on her mouth. “Don’t suppose you’re scared enough of the dark to leave.”

She shook her head. “I don’t suppose you’re planning on leaving me on my own.”

A smile, then, “You might cheat.” He tugged their linked hands and leaned the slightest bit closer.

“True,” she breathed, mirroring his movement. “I wouldn’t trust you if our roles were reversed.” Inches from his face, she admired the curve of his top lip. “What are you doing, Black?”

“I think,” he whispered back, his warm breath fanning over her lips, “I’m going to have to kiss you, McIntire.”

Never let slackers pull taut on your reins.
Never let hardships put worry in your rest.”

“The world, however, can’t survive exclusively either by cooperation or by competition. If there is no growth without competition, there is no love and peace without cooperation either. Extremes of both are unhealthy. A happy man is one who learns to balance these two extremes. He competes with his rivals and yet does not lose compassion for them.”
Awdhesh Singh, 31 Ways to Happiness

Robert Galbraith, Troubled Blood
