Beautiful Words #1

Some beautiful words for the week . . .

“Let’s say you have an ax. Just a cheap one, from Home Depot. On one bitter winter day, you use said ax to behead a man. Don’t worry, the man was already dead. Or maybe you should worry, because you’re the one that shot him.” (John Dies at the End, David Wong).

“And we’ll be saying a big hello to all intelligent life forms everyone . . . and to everyone else out there, the secret is to bang the rocks together, guys.” (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams).

“‘Now and then, though, someone does begin to grow differently. Instead of down, his feet grow up toward the sky. But we do our best to discourage awkward things like that.’ ‘What happens to them?'” insisted Milo. ‘Oddly enough, they often grow ten times the size of everyone else,’ said Alec thoughtfully, ‘and I’ve heard that they walk among the stars.'” (The Phantom Tollbooth, Norton Juster).

“She starched and ironed her face, forming it into just what people wanted to see.” (Their Eyes Were Watching God, Zora Neale Hurston).
