“Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior.

“What do Americans know about morality?

They don’t want their presidents to have penises but they don’t mind if their presidents covertly arrange to support the Nicaraguan rebel forces after Congress has restricted such aid;

[ John IrvingA prayer for Owen Meany ]
