There is only you. So look at yourself, for you are the only devil in this room."

"With such luck as this, he rode the beast in the jaunty way that she deserved, back north, seemingly back from Mexico, pulling up finally at an outlying bar-ex-saloon (they had covered the old adobe face with knotty pine, substituted big stone matades for the cuspidors) and having brought her wrecklessly this far did not park her in the little parking lot but in front of the church next door.

Thus one could join the pagan worshipers with a self-righteous shrug, through latticed doors."

Only connect, and the beast and the monk, robbed of the isolation that is life to either, will die."

My closest is a good thing, a quiet place that helps me hold these thoughts inside my head where no one can hear them."
