Whoever doesn’t live cannot survive here on Earth

Whoever doesn’t live cannot survive. Trivial. Possibly a quotation from a textbook in logic or linguistic analysis  – an exercise for finding semantic presuppositions etc. Whoever doesn’t live in poetry cannot survive on Earth? Bold and controversial. Probably a quotation from a strange or great author who could survive. Indeed, it is a quotation from a great author – Halldór Kiljan Laxness. On the picture below he is with his wife Auður Sveinsdóttir Laxness who sadly passed away on Monday, October 29. She was 94.
