“The best part to take is the head; if this is too heavy, leave the skin behind; but at a minimum, cut out the lower jaw and bring that back. If more than the head can be taken, get a foot; if still more, bring a hand; anything beyond that is about equally useful.”
–anthropologist Grover Krantz, giving advice on what to do with a dead bigfoot
writing in Big Foot-Prints
This is one in a series of quotations.
I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
