“My father built a time machine and then he spent his whole life trying to figure out how to use it to get more time. He spent all the time he had with us thinking about how he wished he had more time, if he could only have more time.”

― Charles Yu, How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

The New Map of Life: How Longer Lives are Changing the World — A Week in Collaboration with the Stanford Center on Longevity
