Jorge Franco Quotes

"My fight isnt so simple, it has very deep roots, from long ago, from earlier generations. Life weighs on me with the weight of my family history, my genes drag along a race of sons of plenty and sons of bitches who with a blade of a machete cleared the pathways of life. Theyre still doing it. They ate with the machete, they worked, they shaved, killed, and settled differences with their wives with machete. Today the machete is a shotgun, a nine-millimeter, a chopper. The weapon has changed but not its use. The story has changed, too, has become terrifying. Once proud, we are now ashamed, without understanding how, why, and when it all happened. We dont know how long our history is, but we can feel its weight."

Quotes About Being Alone Happy

"Karen, her elbows folded on the deck-rail, wanted to share with someone the pleasure in being alone: this is the paradox of any happy solitude.

Nobody was beside her to share the moment, which would have been imperfect with anyone else there." - Author: Elizabeth Bowen

Quotes About Merle

"I continued toward Atlanta with a Merle Haggard C.D. playing on the stereo. They werent great hosts, but those guys in The Ted Kaczynski Fan Club had great taste in music.

I drove down the road while Merle preferred to just stay where he was and drink." - Author: Ian McClellan

Quotes About Sacks

"The Mozart sonata Dad picked out begins to play. When we hear the first note, we open the sacks and the ladybugs escape through the opening, taking flight. Its as if someone has dumped rubies from heaven. Soon they will land on the plants in search of bollworm eggs. But right now they are magic-red ribbons flying over our heads, weaving against the pink sky, dancing up there with Mozart." - Author: Kimberly Willis Holt
