“For Death is the meaning of night;
The eternal shadow
Into which all lives must fall,
All hopes expire.”
Cox, Michael, The Meaning of Night

“After killing the red-haired man, I took myself off to Quinn’s for an oyster supper.”
Michael Cox, The Meaning of Night

“I had retained little of what is generally called religion, except for a visceral conviction that our lives are controlled by some universal mechanism that is greater than ourselves. Perhaps that was what others called God. Perhaps not.”
Michael Cox, The Meaning of Night
