“Being human cannot be born alone. We need other presences. We need soft night noises- a mother speaking downstairs, a grandfather rumbling in response, cars swishing past on Philadelphia Avenue, and their headlights wheeling around the room. We need the little clicks and signs of a sustaining otherness. We need the Gods.”

-John Updike
