Cormac McCarthy Quotes: He Could Not Swim But How Would You

He Could Not Swim, But How Would You Drown Him? His Wrath Seemed To Buoy Him Up. Some Halt In The Way Of Things Seems To Work Here. See Him. You Could Say He's Sustained By His Fellow Man, Like You. Has Peopled The Shore With Them Calling To Him. A Race That Gives Suck To The Maimed And The Crazed, That Wants Their Wrong Blood In Its History And Will Have It. But They Want This Man's Life. He Has Heard Them In The Night Seeking Him With Lanterns And Cries Of Execration. How Then Is He Borne Up? Or Rather, Why Will Not These Waters Take Him?
