“In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi-human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.”
Edward Hoagland

“Did you have to understand life to plunge in? Even kindness, when he encountered it, was a riddle half the time. If you walked into a door and bloodied your nose, it was one thing, but empathy for handicaps had never been his thing when he himself had none. Empathy had been for people of good cheer.”
Edward Hoagland, In the Country of the Blind: A Novel

“True solitude is a din of birdsong, seething leaves, whirling colors, or a clamor of tracks in the snow”
Edward Hoagland
