Quotes Debojit Liked

William Faulkner
“He had a word, too. Love, he called it. But I had been used to words for a long time. I knew that that word was like the others: just a shape to fill a lack; that when the right time came, you wouldn't need a word for that any more than for pride or fear....One day I was talking to Cora. She prayed for me because she believed I was blind to sin, wanting me to kneel and pray too, because people to whom sin is just a matter of words, to them salvation is just words too.”
William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying

William Faulkner
“It takes two people to make you, and one people to die. That's how the world is going to end.”
William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying

William Faulkner
“Memory believes before knowing remembers.”
William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying
