My grandma suffers from a rare form of breast cancer. When I asked her if she's scared, she showed me this.
What I say when people tell me they wish they had time to read like I do. I have time to read because I don't watch much TV.
She said, ‘I’m so afraid.’ And I said, ‘why?,’ and she said, ‘Because I’m so profoundly happy. Happiness like this is frightening.’ I asked her why and she said, ‘They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.’ — Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner
