“The dam of my eyes broke, and tears flooded the land.”
James Sallis, Ghost of a Flea

“Maybe he should turn around. Go back and tell them that’s what life was, a long series of things that didn’t go down the way you thought they would.
Hell with it. Either they’d figure it out or they wouldn’t. Most people never did.”
James Sallis, Drive

“In the darkness things always go away from you. Memory holds you down while regret and sorrow kick hell out of you. The only help you'll get is a few hard drinks and morning.”
James Sallis, The Long-Legged Fly
