The Odd One Quotes #1467753

D.H. Lawrence

The Odd One Quotes #1470478

Saul Bellow

The Odd One Quotes #1556672
#99. Rose, the moon is incredible. Everything down on Earth relies on it. Rats jump for it. Tides rush out from it. Humans kiss under it. Without it there'd be nothing down there worth the light.
