it just happens!

the drunks and abusers, the debtors and vacuums, the ones who ate their food too fast or had never read a novel. Damn, marriage was hard work, was manual labor, and unpaid manual labor at that. Yet, year after year, Grace and Roman had pressed their shoulders against the stone and rolled it up the hill together.

And our articulate, conscious life proceeded without acknowledgement of the preceding civilisations which had produced it.

— Shirley Hazzard
