[God What An Outfield,' He Says. 'What A Left Field.' He Looks Up At Me, And I Look Down At Him. 'This Must Be Heaven,' He Says.No. It's Iowa,' I Reply Automatically. But Then I Feel The Night Rubbing Softly Against My Face Like Cherry Blossoms; Look At The Sleeping Girl-child In My Arms, Her Small Hand Curled Around One Of My Fingers; Think Of The Fierce Warmth Of The Woman Waiting For Me In The House; Inhale The Fresh-cut Grass Small That Seems Locked In The Air Like Permanent Incense; And Listen To The Drone Of The Crowd, As Below Me Shoelss Joe Jackson Tenses, Watching The Angle Of The Distant Bat For A Clue As To Where The Ball Will Be Hit.I Think You're Right, Joe,' I Say, But Softly Enough Not To Disturb His Concentration.]

Quotes About An Enchanted Life

"And he knew that he would never come again, and that lost magic would not come again. Lost now was all of it-the street, the heat, Kings Highway, and Tom the Pipers son, all mixed in with the vast and drowsy murmur of the Fair, and with the sense of absence in the afternoon, and the house that waited, and the child that dreamed. And out of the enchanted wood, that thicket of mans memory, Eugene knew that the dark eye and the quiet face of his friend and brother-poor child, lifes stranger, and lifes exile, lost like all of us, a cipher in blind mazes, long ago-the lost boy was gone forever, and would not return." - Author: Thomas Wolfe

Quotes About Joyland

"We could see other fires--great leaping bonfires as well as cooking fires--all the way down the beach to the twinkling metropolis of Joyland. They made a lovely chain of burning jewelry.
