I’m giving a book away, and want to save my favorite quotes from it before I do.
“Man likes any work that helps him forget his ghost’s bound to his body by a thread.”
“I thought me the qualm was a tale… I ne thought me the world would end in summer, under the sun in a clear sky, with the leaves new and the birds in song and a loving-Andrew in the hedgerow.”
“Otherwise I’m blithe enough. I’ve a full belly, and a roof over my head, and I’m heal. I have love now, and mayn’t do aught today to shield myself of death tomorrow.”
