Sunday Sentence: The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien

Simply put, the best sentence(s) I’ve read this past week, presented out of context and without commentary.

They carried all they could bear, and then some, including a silent awe for the terrible power of the things they carried.

The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien


  1. Great line and a great book!

  2. Fantastic book from a Minnesota native! Heart tearing quotes and prose that is hard to read and must have been harder to live. A must read for any human being who wants to know what love and desolation feel like at the same time. I still carry my P38 after 35 years. It's a simple can opener, but we've both seen a lot together.
