"The Weaving Of Human Living..."

 "...and this is the weaving of human living:
of whose fabric each individual is a part;
each is intimately connected with the
bottom and the extremist reach of time:
and not one of these things nor one of these persons
is ever quite to be duplicated or replaced:
but each is a new and incommunicably tender life,
wounded in every breath, sustaining for a while,
without defense, the enormous assaults of the universe."

- James Agee,
"Now Let Us Praise Famous Men"
