Cormac Mccarthy quotes
1- “When the lambs is lost in the mountain, he said. They is cry. Sometime come the mother. Sometime the wolf.”
2- “It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge. War endures.”
3- “Your heart’s desire is to be told some mystery. The mystery is that there is no mystery.”
4- “You can find meanness in the least of creatures, but when God made man the devil was at his elbow. A creature that can do anything. Make a machine. And a machine to make the machine. And evil that can run itself a thousand years, no need to tend it.”
5- “A man’s at odds to know his mind cause his mind is aught he has to know it with. He can know his heart, but he don’t want to. Rightly so. Best not to look in there.”
