Suttree Art/Quotes

Quotes and Art for Cormac McCarthy's novel, Suttree.

“What man is such a coward he would not rather fall once than remain forever tottering?”

“Justice? Brotherhood? Eternal life? Good god, man. Show me a religion that prepares one for death. For nothingness. There's a church I might enter.”

“My life is ghastly.”

“What deity in the realms of dementia, what rabid god decocted out of the smoking lobes of hydrophobia could have devised a keeping place for souls so poor as is this flesh. This mawky worm-bent tabernacle”

“What family has no mariner in its tree? No fool, no felon. No fisherman.”

“He rocked in the swells, floating like the first germ of life adrift on the earth's cooling seas, formless macule of plasm trapped in a vapor drop and all creation yet to come.”
