This is from last week's New York Times Book Review. The reviewer was writing about Christopher Hitchens' most recent book, Mortality, which was written mostly as he was dying. It says a thing I have been trying to say without ever actually saying it for years.
It's kind of hard to read, I know.
Here's what it says:
"If there is anybody known to you who might benefit from a letter or a visit, do not on any account postpone the writing or the making of it. The difference made will almost certainly be more than you have calculated."
- Christopher Hitchens (1949 - 2011)
