Smilla's Sense of Cacti

"There is something obstinate about cactuses.  The sub tries to hold them down, and the drought, and the night frost.  Yet they thrive.  They bristle, they retreat behind a thick shell.  And they don't budge an inch.  I regard them with sympathy."
-Peter Hoeg, Smilla's Sense of Snow
