How Not To Be Alone

I stumbled across an essay adapted from a commencement speech that Jonathan Safran Foer wrote. The New York Times published it. The final four sentences are below. ~GH

"Being attentive to the needs of others might not be the point of life, but it is the work of life. It can be messy, and painful, and almomst impossibly difficult. But it is not something we give. It is what we get in exchange for having to die." ~~ Jonathan Safran Foer
