[Vendors Still Shivering In The Still-cool Air Gathered Around Me, Pushing Their Wares-chewing Gum, Biscuits, Baby Rattles, Cigarettes, Sold Individually Or By The Pack. I Didn't Want Anything, But They Kept Standing There; They Had Nothing Else To Do. A White Man Is Such An Anomaly, A Foundling From Another Planet, That Is It Possible To Stare At Him With Interest Almost Forever.]

Quotes About Stoner Life

"Sometimes Edith came into the room and sat on the bed beside him and they talked. They talked of trivial things – of people they knew casually, of a new building going up on the campus, of an old one torn down; but what they said did not seem to matter. A new tranquility had come between them. It was a quietness that was like the beginning of love; and almost without thinking, Stoner knew why it had come. They had forgiven themselves for the harm they had done each other, and they were rapt in a regard of what their life together might have been.Almost without regret he looked at her now; in the soft light of late afternoon her face seemed young and unlined. If I had been stronger, he thought; if I had known more; if I could have understood. And finally, mercilessly, he thought: if I had loved her more. As if it were a long distance it had to go, his hand moved across the sheet that covered him and touched her hand. She did not move; and after a while he drifted into a kind of sleep." - Author: John Edward Williams

Quotes About Subliminal Love

"Second, the reason to embrace and celebrate these novels as the countercultural event that they are is due largely to the subliminal messages delivered by Harry and friends in their stolen wheelbarrows. Readers walk away, maybe a little softer on the occult than they were, but with story-embedded messages: the importance of a pure soul; loves power even over death; about sacrifice and loyalty; a host of images and shadows about Christ and how essential right belief is for personal transformation and victory over internal and external evils." - Author: John Granger
