"Honey child. Now you listen to me. The whole thing is a miracle, Alice. The whole shebang! The strange twists of fate, the heartache, the snap crackle pop of everyday life. Come on! The sun out there on the metal trash cans! The yeasty behavior of that Nazi nurse. You have to appreciate it, though, Alice. Don’t go pushing it off because you have some picture of somebody else’s life in your mind. You’ve got to grab it, whatever it is comes down the pike, you grab it. With both hands."
