Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses

Stephen King
“Quand t'as vingt et un an, la vie est nette comme une carte routière. C'est seulement quand t’arrive à vingt-cinq que tu commences à soupçonner que tu tenais la carte à l'envers... et à quarante que t'en as la certitude. Quand t'atteins les soixante, alors là, crois moi t'es définitivement largué.”
