Quotes by Robert R. McGammon - (7 quotes)

Robert R. McGammon - From the Aging category:

- Boy's Life...
Life itself does its best to take that memory of magic away from us. You don't know it's happening until one day you feel you've lost something but you're not sure what it is. It's like smiling at a pretty girl and she calls you 'sir.' It just happens. (Robert R. McGammon)

Robert R. McGammon - From the Nature category:

-Boy's Life
There is something about nature out of control that touches a primal terror. We are used to believing that we're the masters of our domain, and that God has given us this earth to rule over. We need this illusion like a good night-light. (Robert R. McGammon)

Robert R. McGammon - From the Possessions category:

-Boy's Life
It seems to me that Mr. Sculley understood the very nucleus of existence, that he had kept his young eyes and young heart even though his body had grown old. He saw straight through to the cosmic order of things, and he knew that life is not held only in flesh and bone, but also in those objects - a good, faithful pair of shoes; a reliable car; a pen that always works; a bike that has taken you many a mile... (Robert R. McGammon)
