of the living is not something that will be; if there is one, it is
what is already here, the inferno where we live every day, that we
form by being together. There are two ways to escape suffering it.
The first is easy for many: accept the inferno and become such a part
of it that you can no longer see it. The second is risky and demands
constant vigilance and apprehension: seek and learn to recognize who
and what, in the midst of inferno, are not inferno, then make them
endure, give them space."
