Cameron West Quotes

"Janna knew - Rikki knew — and I knew, too — that becoming Dr Cameron West wouldnt make me feel a damn bit better about myself than I did about being Citizen West. Citizen West, Citizen Kane, Sugar Ray Robinson, Robinson Crusoe, Robinson miso, miso soup, black bean soup, black sticky soup, black sticky me. Yeah. Inside I was still a fetid and festering corpse covered in sticky blackness, still mired in putrid shame and scorching self-hatred.

Quotes About Feet In Grass

"I can see the driver as if Im looking at him through binoculars, bending to adjust the volume on his radio, eyes wide at what he hears, which I cant understand because when he hits you there is only silence. My feet, pounding through the grass, make no sound. I know that my mouth is open, that air is rushing across my stretched vocal chords, but I hear nothing. You lift into the air and the car is past before you land silently at my feet, as if something as small as you couldnt possibly make a sound in a world where buildings can come down." - Author: Philip Beard
