Billy watches the stars - The Crossing - Cormac McCarthy

This quote was added by qazonk
He lay on the cooling earth and watched the stars. The dark shape of the horse off to his left where he'd staked it. The horse raising its head above the skyline to listen among the constellations and then bending to graze again. He studied those worlds sprawled in their pale ignitions upon the nameless night and he tried to speak to God about his brother and after a while he slept. He slept and woke from a troubling dream and could not sleep again.
