Travis McGee on Earth

I think there is some kind of divine order in the universe. Every leaf on every tree in the world is unique. As far as we can see, there are other galaxies, all slowly spinning, numerous as the leaves in the forest. In an infinite number of planets, there has to be an infinite number with life forms on them. Maybe this planet is one of the discarded mistakes. Maybe it's one of the victories. We'll never know.
 ~Travis McGee 

A timeless contemplation from A Deadly Shade of Gold by John D. MacDonald.


  1. What Travis said is absolutely true. It's surprising that this world has people called Atheists.

  2. The time of departure has arrived,
    everyone go his way , I to die and you to live.
    Which is the better, only God knows.
