The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

"He was like a man who had served a term in prison or had been to Harvard College or had lived for a long time with foreigners in South America. He was like a person who had been somewhere that other people are not likely to go or had done something that others are not apt to do." 

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, p. 21

  1. Beautiful quote. Makes we yearn for something, but I'm not sure what. Would you recommend the book?

    somewhere... beyond the sea

    1. It is making me yearn for that man -:) great quote.

  2. One of my favorite books ever! Nice quote.

  3. This quote makes me think of a beach but with a stormy weather, no reason why! I love it

  4. This quote is quite lovely, we all, well I long to discover things that no one has ever discovered and go places other people have never gone before. To acquire knowledge that is rare. To find something deeper... Yuri, like I say every time, it never fails that when I come to your blog I always want to read the book you've posted about. This time was no exception.

    Best xoxo,

  5. Ahh, this book was amazing! I'm a big fan of Carson McCullers. The way she crafted character relationships in this book were both compelling and heartbreaking...
