Jostein Gaarder

Life is short for those who are truly able to understand that one day the entire world will come to a complete end. Not everyone is capable of that. Not everyone has the ability to comprehend what going away for all eternity really implies. There are too many distractions, hour by hour, minute by minute, to hinder such an understanding. ― Jostein Gaarder, The Orange Girl . (Phoenix; New edition, October 18, 2011) Originally published 2003.
