there's an awful lot of life to cherish

Saturday, May 29, 2010

"You clean up your father's shit because it has to be cleaned up, but in the aftermath of cleaning it up, everything that's there to feel is felt as it never was before.  It wasn't the first time that I'd understood this either: once you sidestep disgust and ignore nausea and plunge past those phobias that are fortified like taboos, there's an awful lot of life to cherish."

~ Philip Roth, Patrimony: A True Story, 1991
