None of those keeping my Derek alive have ever made me feel it’s a chore, they want to win this as much as I want them to, but it must be so hard. He is still critically ill in intensive care, but where there is life there is hope. Thank you NHS from the bottom of my heart.

Schroder: I like Beethoven. But Brahms makes me glad I’m alive. I think I’ll go home and listen to Brahm’s Fourth. I have the need to have the feeling that it’s good to be alive.
Charlie Brown: I know what you mean. That’s a terrible feeling to have the need of having the feeling of having.
– Charles M. Schulz
I’m always saying “Glad to’ve met you” to somebody I’m not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff, though.
– J. D. Salinger
The only dream worth having is to dream that you will live while you’re alive and die only when you’re dead. To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.
– Arundhati Roy
