Lagniappe: The courageous heat of the stars

The waxing moon tossed a dull glow on the surface of the clouds, but it was the scattered layers of stars that held my attention. I looked at them and tried to feel the courageous heat of their battle as they fought against the natural state of all things in the universe: dead cold.
Craig Johnson, Hell is Empty
I just loved how this is put. I'm working my way through Dante's Divine Comedy ... slowly, slowly ... and have just gotten out of Hell. Where it is very cold.
