133. "U njezinim ocima drhtale su suze...A on je osjecao da pripadaju njemu...Sva mu duša zatrepti. Nije vidio ništa drugo nego njezine suzne oci, ni na šta nije više mislio, samo je osjecao nju. U tom osjecaju povuce njezine ruke i privine ih na svoje grudi. Ona se nije opirala. Osjecala je da mu srce burno udara, da je svaki udar jedan krik za njom, vapaj k njoj, da je svaki dah ovog muškarca njezin...Kroz tvrdi oklop kojim je okovala svoje srce provali zatajena ljubav. Misli i razbor utekoše, ona klone na njegove grudi...Zadrhtao je kao trstika, kad je zahvati vihor. Njegove jake ruke obuhvate je, privinu k sebi tako cvrsto, silno i pohlepno kao da ce je pretvoriti u sebe. Sve misli, sav razbor zanijemiše, obamriješe. Samo srca šapcu, dozivaju se i cjelivaju u besvjesnom omamnom zagrljaju. Sunce se spuštalo na zapad i kroz velike prozore opraštalo se s njima svojim krvavim suzama. Tiho i necujno šuljaju se trenuci da ih ne probude iz sna."

144. "Jake reached into the front pocket of his poncho, lifted Oy out, set him on the powdery floor of the cave. He bent down, hands planted just above his knees. Oy looked up, stetching his neck so that their faces almost touched. And now Roland saw something exraordinary: not the tears in Jake's eyes, but those that had begun to well up in Oy's. A billy-bumbler crying. It was the sort of story you might hear in a saloon as the night grew late and drunk--the faithful bumbler who wept for his departing master. You didn't believe such stories but never said so, in order to save brawling (perhaps even shooting). Yet here it was, he was seeing it, and it made Roland feel a bit like crying himself. Was it just more bumbler imitation, or did Oy really understand what was happening? Roland hoped for the former, and with all his heart."

Hey if you ever feel like having a life again, you could come see me. 'I've still got your motorcycle in my garage."

150. "The new country lay open before me: there were no fences in those days, and I could choose my own way over the grass uplands, trusting the pony to get me home again. Sometimes I followed the sunflower-bordered roads. Fuchs told me that the sunflowers were introduced into that country by the Mormons; that at the time of the persecution when they left Missouri and struck out into the wilderness to find a place where they could worship God in their own way, the members of the first exploring party, crossing the plains to Utah, scattered sunflower seeds as they went. The next summer, when the long trains of wagons came through with all the women and children, they had a sunflower trail to follow. I believe that botanists do not confirm Jake's story but, insist that the sunflower was native to those plains. Nevertheless, that legend has stuck in my mind, and sunflower-bordered roads always seem to me the roads to freedom."
