“Even a wasted life stands as an important example and therefore can never be useless.”
Mark Wallace, The Quarry And The Lot

Mark Wallace, The Quarry And The Lot
“But he said to his wife, sitting next to him on the couch in the TV room, that rarely had he seen a funeral at which it seemed like almost nobody in attendance had any idea why they were there. His wife, who had heard things like this from him before, reminded him of a ceremony he had presided over only a few months ago about which he had had the same reaction. 'Oh right,' the minister said. 'Yes. That one was much worse.' He leaned down to the coffee table and picked up the remote.”
Mark Wallace, The Quarry And The Lot
“I need to get in line,' I said.

Mark Wallace, The Quarry And The Lot
“Any historian knows...that possibilities and history are connected. It's not simply our hard work, but that we lived in circumstances in which prosperity wasn't taken away. For most people, for most of history, it's not true that religion, work and love have led to successful, happy lives. Instability, fear, disease, and war are so much more common that our lives are tremendous exceptions. Isn't that miraculous?”
