Peter Matthiessen Quotes: Long Long Ago Down The Browning Decades

Long Long Ago Down The Browning Decades, In The Light Of The Old Century In Carolina, Walked A Toddling Child, A Wary Boy, A Strong Young Male Of Muscle, Blood, And Brain Who Saw, Who Laughed And Listened, Smelled And Touched, Ate, Drank, And Bred, Occupying Time And Space With His Getting And Spending In The World. What His Biographer Will Strive To Recover Is A True Sense Of This Human Being, With All His Particularity And Hope And Promise, In The Hope That The Reader Might Understand Who The Grown Man Might Have Become Had He Not Known Too Much Of Privation, Rage, And Loss.
