Warm and fuzzy quote of the week

This comes from Alexander McCall Smith, The Unbearable Lightness of Scones, Edinburgh, Polygon 2008. More on that later.

Why do people like Australia so much? he asked himself. And an unexpected answer came to him: it’s because everything that has been destroyed elsewhere, in an orgy of self-hatred, still survives here.
