Quotes by Michael Farris Smith  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Tomorrow you and them will set out for the end of your lives and I’ll be here. The one who gave and would keep on giving if you’d let me. But you don’t want to let me. You and them are going to walk through the valley but you’ll have no shepherd. You’ll have no answers. And you’ll kill the babies. And you’ll die. You ain’t no healer, no more than I am, but I can give more than you.”
Michael Farris Smith, Rivers

“if there is one thing the lost are able to recognize it is the others who are just as wounded and wandering.”
Michael Farris Smith, Nick

“How could you imagine the complexities of what might come?”
Michael Farris Smith, Desperation Road
