At Last There is Nothing Left to Say[edit]

The following quotes are from a compilation of fictional writings by Matthew Good released under the title At Last There is Nothing Left to Say.

  • I’d love to know the future. Even if it’s just the past all dressed up to make whatever comes next look good.
  • It's like luggage their language.
  • It is not unlike men to leave.
  • I told him to smother Linda with a pillow while she was sleeping. All he said was “Can’t live with ’em, can’t smother ’em with a pillow." I disagreed.
  • You will definitely not survive this next bit.
  • I bought a garden hose the other day. I have no idea why. I do things like that from time to time. For example, I’ll go out intending to buy cereal and come home with two Filipino hookers and an application for the Entertainment Card.
  • ...there is something larger that’s looming out there. A force that remains patient and silent. An entity that waits to teach a lesson that we have yet to grasp. It is much better to just lie there and let it roll over you like some immense army of unquestionable wonder.
  • "What made you think of Valium anyway?" I said. "I don't know. Maybe it was all that Valium that I took?" she said.
  • Good morning, sunshine, time to go.
