3 quotes

These are three book quotes that I really like.  I am going through the Gunslinger series so two of the quotes are from that, and otherwise have been reading a lot of Stephen King lately, so every quote from him.

“Go then, There are other worlds then this.” Jake to Roland in The Gunslinger in Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, when he let Jake (a person he loved like a son) die in order to attain his tower.

“Thinner, the old Gypsy man with the rotting nose whispers to William Halleck as Halleck and his wife, Heidi, come out of the courthouse. Just that one word, sent on the wafting, cloying sweetness of his breath. ‘Thinner.’ And before Halleck can jerk away, the old Gypsy reaches out and caresses his cheek with a twisted finger. His lips spread open like a wound, showing a few tombstone stumps poking out of his gums. They are black and green. His tongue squirms between them and then slides out to slick his grinning, bitter lips.

Thinner.”

~The first paragraph of the novel Thinner by Stephen King.

“Not all is silent in the halls of the dead and the rooms of ruin. Even now some of the stuff the Old Ones left behind still works. And that’s really the horror of it, wouldn’t you say? Yes. The exact horror of it.” ― Stephen King, The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass

I think it is interesting what quotes people find stick with them and move them from books.
It is also interesting how books change a person and offer comfort.  I love that about books.  How they are sold publicly but are also so personal.

Ok I think I ought to add a picture again… Okay well let’s stay relevant this time:
