Quotes Kisholi Liked

Stephen King
“Once again there was the desert, and that only.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Stephen King
“It had been no struggle to turn his face to the south and leave it behind — but it had hurt his heart.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Stephen King
“You cannot friend a hawk, they said, unless you are a hawk yourself, alone and only a sojourner in the land, without friends or the need of them.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Stephen King
“Any thoughts of guilt, any feelings of regret, had faded. The desert had baked them out.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Stephen King
“Beyond the reach of human rage
A drop of hell, a touch of strange ...”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger

Stephen King
“A time will come when it won’t pass.’
The gunslinger made no reply, for he knew this was true. The trap had a ghastly perfection. If someone told you you’d go to hell if you thought about seeing your mother naked (once when the gunslinger was very young he had been told this very thing), you’d eventually do it. And why? Because you did not want to imagine your mother naked. Because you did not want to go to hell. Because, if given a knife and a hand in which to hold it, the mind would eventually eat itself. Not because it wanted to; because it did not want to.”
Stephen King, The Gunslinger
