A place of no sorrow

Where the glacier meets the sky, the land ceases to be earthly, and the earth become one with the heavens; no sorrows live there any more, and therefore joy is not necessary; beauty alone reigns there, beyond all demands.

— Halldór Laxness, Nobel Pize-winning Icelandic writer, in World Light
