You think that if you wake up yesterday morning, it doesn`t count. But yesterday, that`s all that matters. What else is there? Your life consists of the days it is made of. Otherwise, no. Listen to me, he says, if your dreams are of a world that never existed, or a world that never will be, and you are happy again, then you will have given up. Do you understand me? And you must not give up, I will not leave you. People will tell you that Vietnam has brought this country to its knees. But I never believed it. It was already in poor condition. Vietnam was just the icin on the cake.
We didn`t have to give them anything to take control there. If we had sent them without guns, I don`t know, because they would have been much worse. You can`t go to war like that. You cannot go to war without God. I don`t know what will happen when the next one comes. Certainly not. If I didn`t have them, I don`t know what I would have. Well, yes, I do. You wouldn`t need a box to put it on. What do you say to a man who, by his own admission, has no soul? Why would you say something? I thought about it a lot.
But it was not compared to what went down. “When the shooting starts, would you rather be armed or legal?” In spring or warm weather, when the snow thaws in the forests, the traces of winter reappear on thin pedestals and the snow reveals to the palimpsest ancient buried migrations, fights, scenes of death. The stories of winter have returned to the light, as if time is turning on itself. Well, I think, in all honesty, I have to say that I have never known or ever heard from anyone that money does not change. In an ideal world, the gossip of sloths would make no sense. But I`ve seen the consequences in the real world, and they can be very serious. If problems arise when you least expect them, then this may be the thing to always expect. Having a child when you`re older takes you out of your nap and makes you look at things in a new way. It forces the world on you. And I think that`s a good thing. While people can encounter death in strange and dark places they could have avoided, it was more correct to say that no matter how hidden or twisted the path of its destruction was, they would seek it. Perhaps, in the destruction of the world, it would finally be possible to see how it was made.
Oceans, mountains. The cumbersome counter-spectacle of things that cease to be. The sweeping of waste, hydrooptic and cold centuries. Silence. I think sometimes people would rather have a wrong answer than no answer at all. One thing about me, if I`m wrong, I admit it. Well. This is a good quality.
I always thought when I was older that God would somehow enter my life. He did not. I don`t blame him. If I were him, I would have the same opinion of myself as he did. He said that the idea that evil is rarely rewarded was greatly exaggerated, because if there was no benefit, people would avoid it, and then how could virtue be associated with its rejection? And in the dream, I knew he was early and obsessed with making a fire somewhere out there in all the darkness and cold, and I knew he would always be there whenever I got there. And then I woke up. The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. If you hadn`t seen everything since birth and hadn`t stolen his strangeness, it would seem to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medical show, a feverish dream, a trance populated by chimeras that are neither analogue nor precedented, a wandering carnival, a traveling tent show whose final destination after many places in many confusing areas is unspeakable and unimaginable. She said these are things that all women know, but rarely talk about. After all, she said that if women were attracted to men in a hurry, it was only because they knew in their secret hearts that a man who would not kill for them was of no use.
McCarthy`s neo-Western novel No Country for Old Men (2005) follows the interconnected paths of Llewelyn Moss, Anton Chigurh and Sheriff Ed Tom Bell. The story takes place near the border between Mexico and the United States somewhere in 1980 and involves illegal drug trafficking gone wrong. The central theme of No Country for Old Men was violence. However, he also explored morality, ethics, wealth, the subtle presence of greed, free will, war, marriage, good choices, and age. The novel was adapted into a film in 2007 and won four Academy Awards, including Best Adapted Screenplay. What he loved about horses was what he loved about people, the blood and warmth of blood flowing through them. All his reverence, all his affection and all the inclinations of his life were for hearts and they would always be like that and would never be different. And dreams so rich in color. Otherwise, what would death call you? When I woke up in the cold dawn, everything immediately turned to ashes.
Like some ancient frescoes that had been buried for centuries and were suddenly exposed to the day. I think that`s more what you want to become. And I think a person should put his soul at risk. And I`m not going to do that. I think now I may never do that. By the time you found out, it would be too late You can find wickedness in the smallest creatures, but when God created man, the devil was at his elbow. A creature that can do anything. Make a machine.
And a machine to make the machine. And the evil that can run for a thousand years does not need to be cultivated. When he returned to the fire, he knelt down and straightened her hair while she slept, and he said that if he were God, he would have made the world this way and not otherwise. Either you stay or you stop. And I won`t leave you, I don`t care what you did. If you talk to seniors who have had good lives, half of them will inevitably say, “The most important thing in my life is that I have been extraordinarily lucky.” And when you hear that, you know you`re hearing the truth. It does not diminish their talent or their industry. You can have all this and fail.
How would you know if you were the last person on earth? Say. I don`t think you would know. It would just be you. He saw very clearly how his whole life led only to that moment and everything that followed led nowhere at all. He felt something cold and soulless like any other being enter him, and he imagined that he was smiling viciously and had no reason to believe that he would ever go. Because often when I say anything about how the world is going to hell in a basket, people smile and tell me I`m getting older. He looked at the country with those sunken eyes, as if the world had been changed or made suspect by what he had seen elsewhere. As if he might never really see it again. Or worse, finally seen right. See him as he had always been, would be forever. You don`t know what you`re moving,” he said.
No one can know. No prophet foresaw this. The consequences of an action are often very different from what might be expected. You must be sure that the intention in your heart is great enough to contain all the bad tricks, all the disappointments. You see? Not everything has such value. People think they know what they want, but that`s usually not the case. Sometimes, if they`re lucky, they get it anyway. I`ve always been lucky. All my life.
Otherwise, I would not be here. What he could endure in the waking world, he could not bear at night and he stayed awake for fear that the dream would return. Even if you knew what to do, you wouldn`t know what to do. You wouldn`t know if you wanted to do it or not. I think the truth is always simple. It has to be about that. It must be simple enough for a child to understand. Otherwise, it would be too late. If you understood that, it would be too late. No one can tell you what your life will be, can they? Lol It`s never as expected. Quijada nodded.
If people knew their life story, how many would choose to live it? The narrator`s task is not easy, he said. He seems to be challenged to choose his story from among the many possibilities.
