From nowhere we came, into nowhere we go. What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night.

Finally reading the last of the Stieg Larsson trilogy and was struck by this description of one of the main characters.

“She was afraid that it was a moral issue, because that was one of his weaknesses. He was Salander’s friend. She knew her brother. She knew that he was loyal to the point of foolhardiness once he had made someone a friend, even if the friend was impossible and obviously flawed. She also knew that he could accept any number of idiocies from his friends, but that there was a boundary and it could not be overstepped. Where exactly this boundary was seemed to vary from one person to another, but she knew he had broken completely with people who had previously been close friends because they had done something that he regarded as beyond the pale. And he was inflexible. The break was forever.”

Wonder how many other people would relate to that description.

I know where at least one of my boundaries is.
