Always, Every Moment

The only joy in the world is to begin.  It is good to be alive because living is beginning, always, every moment.  When this sensation is lacking -- as when one is in prison, or ill, or stupid, or when living has become a habit -- one might as well be dead.

-- Cesare Pavese (1908 - 1950), Italian author and poet, This Business of Living, (23 November 1937)
