Lately I've found myself saving quotes from various people. I like when I find a sentence or two that conveys a lot of meaning or feeling in just a few words. Today I was reading the liner notes for Moby's latest CD Hotel and came across this snippet:
"we exist and we strive and we love and we cry and we laugh and we run around and we sleep and we build things and we have sex and then we die and, not to sound too depressing, the world is wiped clean of our biological presence. which, from my perspective, makes our brief biological time here all the more precious due to it's relative brevity."
Note: the lack of capital letters and incorrect grammatical use of "it's" are in the original liner notes. I'd prefer to leave the quote it in its original form rather than insert [sic].
