Cormac McCarthy
“The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible.

The universe is no narrow thing and the order within it is not constrained by any latitude in its conception to repeat what exists in one part in any other part. Even in this world more things exist without our knowledge than with it and the order in creation which you see is that which you have put there, like a string in a maze, so that you shall not lose your way. For existence has its own order and that no man's mind can compass, that mind itself being but a fact among others.”
Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West

“War was always here. Before man was, war waited for him. The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.”

“That was one of the virtues of being a pessimist: nothing was ever as bad as you thought it would be.”
James Jones, From Here to Eternity

James  Jones
“If I never meet you
In this life
Let me feel the lack
A glance from your eyes
Then my life
Will be yours”
James Jones, The Thin Red Line

“Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.”
