A Quote by Roy Blount, Jr. on wonder

in

I am open to the accusation that I see compost as an end it itself. But we do grow some real red damn tomatoes such as you can't get in the stores. And potatoes, beans, lettuce, collards, onions, squash, cauliflower, eggplant, carrots, peppers. Dirt in you own backyard, producing things you eat. Makes you wonder.

A Quote by Roy Blount, Jr. on justice, people, time, and work

If you were a member of Jesse James's band and people asked you what you were, you wouldn't say 'Well, I'm a desperado.' You'd say something like, 'I work in banks,' or 'I've done some railroad work.' It took me a long time just to say 'I'm a writer.' It's really embarrassing.
