Faulkner / When I was young

William Faulkner

When I was young

William Faulkner


"I can remember how when I was young I believed death to be a phenomenon of the body; now I know it to be merely a function of the mind - and that of the minds of the ones who suffer the bereavement. The nihilists say it is the end; the fundamentalists, the beginning; when in reality it is no more than a single tenant or family moving out of a tenement or a town."


- William Faulkner (As I Lay Dying)
