  • You cannot worry about everything.
  • … only at night can you truly feel the magnificence of the wild animals all around you.
  • … the things you regret most are the ones you didn’t do, not the ones you did.
  • … emotional blackmail does make you cross.
  • Just when you think a day can’t get any worse it does.
  • There truly are no words to describe the moments that followed. Nor do I know how long they lasted. But after they had passed, our astonished numbness thawed into speech.
  • … fall in love such a height and so hard and so completely that they never quite recover from the drop.
