A Breath Is Cooked Air

A beautiful quote snagged from Jonathan Carrolls CarollBlog.

A breath is cooked air; we live in a constant simmering. There is a furnace in our cells, and when we breathe we pass the world through our bodies, brew it lightly, and turn it loose again, gently altered for having known us.

– Diane Ackerman

  1. Great quote. I also like this one:

    “I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.”


  2. Jonathan Carroll’s daily blog on his website is one of the best on the Internet. I read it every day.
