William Faulkner Quote
The doctor didn't even take out his stethoscope nor even touch him. He's all right, the doctor said.
He didn't even catch cold. He just quit.
Quit? McCaslin said.
Yes. Old people do that sometimes. Then they get a good night's sleep or maybe it's just a drink of whisky, and they change their minds.
