Speedy Quote Sunday

Hey there, book nerds!

I hope you guys are doing well. I’ve got a couple of lines to share with you from some pretty long epics. The journeys through these series was/is long and dreary but I’ve found a solace and worthwhile feeling. It’s almost that drudging of the end that while you so badly wanted to get to it, when you got there you felt a little empty.

The two epics? The Dark Tower and Dune. Here we go…

“There are problems in this universe for which there are no answers.” (Dune Messiah, Frank Herbert)

I think people struggle with this. This is where you get told, “But science!” and “But God!”. It is a common and human struggle that we have to have some kind of answer. Nothing is ever just simply simple or mysterious. We can’t handle it.

“All right. I go. Long days and pleasant nights. May we meet again in the clearing at the end of the path when all worlds end.” (The Dark Tower, Stephen King)

King has a knack for leaving impressions with his goodbyes. His endings are a fifty-fifty, but his goodbyes are straight-shooters. I get hung up on every one of his goodbyes regardless how deep or blunt or small. It’s as if he knows just how to say it when I imagine it’s not easy. Not ever.

More to come soon…
