Quotable Thursday


This week I'm reading True Grit by Charles Portis. Mattie Ross is an awfully cold character.

"Who is the best marshal they have?"
The sheriff thought on it a minute. He said, "I would have to weigh that proposition. There is near about two hundred of them. I reckon William Waters is the best tracker. He is a half-breed Comanche and it is something to see, watching him cut for sign. The meanest one is Rooster Cogburn. He is a pitiless man, double tough, and fear don't enter into his thinking. He loves to pull a cork. Now LT Quinn, he brings his prisoners in alive..."
I said, "Where can I find this Rooster?"
