Quotes by Barney Norris  (?)

“Perhaps all adult life was an attempt to keep alight the fires that burned when you were young.”
Barney Norris, Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain

“Now I am old I wish the young man I used to be had worried less about the past and lived more heedlessly in the present. I suppose I did as much living as I could. But I burn to tell men and women who are still young now how quickly it is going to get behind them, how fiercely they ought to love it while they can.”
Barney Norris, Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain

“Every bar in the score of ourselves is receding already into memory, into imagination, even as we play it out. We might as well listen.”
Barney Norris, Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain
