The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey by Walter Mosley

Standard

Here are a few of my favorite quotes fromThe Last Days of Ptolemy Grey” by Walter Mosley

 

“The great man say that life is pain,” Coydog had said over eighty-five years before.  That mean if you love life, then you love the hurt that come along wit’ it. Now, if that ain’t the blues, I don’t know what is.” p.76

 

“Ptolemy and Peter Brock worked on a truck, driving up and down city streets delivering ice to the customers of Brock’s father, Minister Brock. “What church your daddy preach at?” “He ain’t no preacher,” Peter said. “My grandfather named him that so if you used his first name you had to respect him anyway.” p.79

 

“The older you get the more you live in the past.” p.166
