Quotes by David Bezmozgis  (?)

“—I would say that one walks hand in hand with fate. Fate pulls in one direction, you pull in the other. You follow fate; fate follows you. And it is not always possible to say who is leading whom.”
David Bezmozgis, The Betrayers

“This is what I discovered during my imprisonment. I saw the human character in its naked form. I saw at one end a narrow rank of villainy, and at the other a narrow rank of virtue. In the middle was everyone else. And I understood that the state of the world is the result of the struggle between these two extremes.”
David Bezmozgis, The Betrayers

“A measure of earth under your feet that you could call your own. Was there a more primitive concept? But nobody lives in the ether.”
David Bezmozgis, The Betrayers
