A Quote by Annie Dillard

Who and of what import were the men whose bones bulk the Great Wall, the thirty million Mao starved, or the thirty million children not yet five who die each year now?  Why, they are the insignificant others, of course; living or dead, they are just some of the plentiful others...

And you?  To what end were we billions of oddballs born?

Annie Dillard (nee Doak) (1945 -)
