Quote of the Day

From Steinbeck’s East of Eden, at the end of Chapter 47:

“… Aron took an increasing joy in a concept of his own wickedness. In a frenzy he poured joyous abjectness on paper to send to [Abra], and he went to bed purified, as a man is after sexual love. He set down every evil thought he had and renounced it. The results were love letters that dripped with longing and by their high tone made Abra very uneasy. She could not know that Aron’s sexuality had taken a not unusual channel.”

I knew I liked this book.
