The mouldering that goes unnoticed and unchecked."

But it was while we were there, gathering rocks from the moon's desolate landscape, that we looked up and caught a glimpse of just how incredible our own planet was. Its singular astonishing beauty. We called her Mother Earth. Because she gave birth to us, and then we sucked her dry."

30. "Ma in nessuna delle sue fantasie avrebbe potuto immaginare di finire intrappolato in una realtà puramente mentale, con il mondo reale ridotto a una distesa di cenere e fumo sovrastata da nubi tossiche e gas. Uno sconfinato spazio di terra senza futuro, di acqua senza vita. Una silenziosa palla di roccia in orbita nel Sistema Solare, divenuta all'improvviso inospitale. La civiltà di Alex aveva percorso l'ultimo tratto del sentiero. Si era arresa alla Natura. Aveva obbedito impotente alle leggi del cosmo, spietate e uguali per tutti i possibili universi paralleli. Ma nelle pieghe dei ricordi, là dove tutto era già successo e il tempo non seguiva più un andamento lineare, continuava a echeggiare un rumore di fondo. Un flebile, piccolo e insignificante crepitio.L'eco lontana della speranza."

35. "If the heart of Africa remained elusive, my search for it had brought me closer to understanding myself and other human beings. The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. It impels mighty ambitions and dangerous capers. We amass great fortunes at the cost of our souls, or risk our lives in drug dens from London's Soho, to San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury. We shout in Baptist churches, wear yarmulkes and wigs and argue even the tiniest points in the Torah, or worship the sun and refuse to kill cows for the starving. Hoping that by doing these things, home will find us acceptable or failing that, that we will forget our awful yearning for it."

I'm familiar with those.<> So...I'm larking through the Baby Gap, looking at tiny capri pants and sweaters that cost more than...I don't know, more than they should.
