"The greatest peril of life lies in the fact that human food consists entirely of souls. All the creatures that we to kill and eat, all those that we have to strike down and destroy to make clothes for ourselves, have souls, souls that do not perish with the body and which must therefore be pacified lest they revenge themselves on us for taking away their bodies"

Quotes About Early Dawn

"I was a young black man, light-skinned enough so that four out of five people who met me, of whatever race, assumed I was white.... I was a homosexual who now knew he could function heterosexually.And I was a young writer whose early attempts had already gotten him a handful of prizes....So, I thought, you are neither black nor white.You are neither male nor female.And you are that most ambiguous of citizens, the writer.There was something at once very satisfying and very sad, placing myself at this pivotal suspension. It seemed, in the park at dawn, a kind of revelation--a kind of center, formed of a play of ambiguities, from which I might move in any direction." - Author: Samuel R. Delany

For that reason, its a peaceful corner of England, rather nice. But its also something of a lost corner.Someone claimed after the lesson that Miss Emily had said Norfolk was Englands lost corner because that was were all the lost property found in the country ended up.Ruth said one evening, looking out at the sunset, that when we lost something precious, and wed looked and looked and still couldnt find it, then we didnt have to be completely heartbroken. We still had that last bit of comfort, thinking one day, when we were grown up, and we were free to travel the country, we could always go and find it again in Norfolk." - Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
