“He blew time like he had it to spare, like it grew on clocks instead of died there.”

“The powerful intellect leashed by an impoverished vocabulary is a myth. Without a vocabulary, a language, the intellect cannot develop.”
T. Geronimo Johnson, Welcome to Braggsville

“He had thought it through, even though following his own logic was a bit like tracking a shadow through a tunnel, he was never sure the idea he was tailing at the exit was the same idea he had been following at the entrance.”
T. Geronimo Johnson, Welcome to Braggsville
