Quote of the Day

Is that really that, then? he thought, looking down into the brown slow river. Was he really now disburdened of history as an occupation?

Maybe the old bookstore would take him back. He really had a lot longer to live. What was he to do?

— John Crowley, The Solitudes (1987)
(Incidentally, The Solitudes was originally published under the title Aegypt. The latter is the title of the four-volume novel of which The Solitudes is the first part. After the completion of the whole, The Solitudes was republished under its current title.)
