Dewey Dell Quotes

Two of the best book quotes from Dewey Dell
  1. #1
    “Dewey Dell rises, heaving to her feet. She looks down at the face. It is like a casting of fading bronze upon the pillow, the hands alone still with any semblance of life: a curled, gnarled inertness; a spent yet alert quality from which weariness, exhaustion, travail had not yet departed, as though they doubted even yet the actuality of rest, guarding with horned and penurious alertness the cessation which they know cannot last.”
  2. #2
    “The dead air shapes the dead darkness, further away than seeing shapes the dead earth.”
