The Road

I just finished The Road by Cormac McCarthy and wanted to share two of my favorite quotes/passages from the book before I put it back on the book shelf.

“When your dreams are of some world that never was or of some world that never will be and you are happy again then you will have given up.  Do you understand?  And you cant give up.” -The Man to the Boy

“That hurt, didn’t it? the boy said.

Yes It did.

Are you real brave?

Just medium.

What’s the bravest thing you ever did?

He spat into the road a bloody phlegm.  Getting up this morning, he said.

Really?

No.  Don’t listen to me.  Come on, let’s go.” – Conversation between the Man and the Boy
