Look Homeward, Angel, Thomas Wolfe. “My dear, dear girl […] we can’t turn back the days that have gone. We can’t turn life back to the hours when our lungs were sound, our blood hot, our bodies young. We are a flash of fire—a brain, a heart, a spirit. And we are three-cents-worth of lime and iron—which we cannot get back.” ― Thomas Wolfe, Look Homeward, Angel. New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1929. First edition. Original dust jacket.
