The Road

“He knew only that his child was his warrant. He said: If he is not the word of God God never spoke.”

“You forget what you want to remember, and you remember what you want to forget.”

“People were always getting ready for tomorrow. I didn’t believe in that. Tomorrow wasn’t getting ready for them. It didn’t even know they were there.”

“There is no God and we are his prophets.”

“Borrowed time and borrowed world and borrowed eyes with which to sorrow it.”

“Query: How does the never to be differ from what never was?”

“When one has nothing left make ceremonies out of the air and breathe upon them.”

“Look around you. Ever is a long time. But the boy knew what he knew. That ever is no time at all.”

Cormac McCarthy – The Road
