Virgins, bulls, men

Thursday, April 17, 2008

“In the Spaniard’s heart is a great yearning for freedom, but only his own. A great love of truth and honor in all its forms, but not in its substance. And a deep conviction that nothing can be proven except that it be made to bleed. Virgins, bulls, men. Ultimately God himself.”

- Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses, 1992
