Welty Surprises

“It was in a place where the days would go by and surprise anyone that they were over.”
― Eudora Welty, The Collected Stories

“For he was not strong enough to receive the impact of unfamiliar things without a little talk to break their fall.”
― Eudora Welty, The Collected Stories

“And who could ever remember any of the things he says? They are just inspired remarks that roll out of his mouth like smoke.”
― Eudora Welty, The Collected Stories

“In the end, it takes phenomenal neatness of housekeeping to put it through the heads of men that they are swine.”

“Was now the time to look forward to the doom of parting, and stop looking back at the doom of meeting?”
― Eudora Welty, The Collected Stories

“He looked home-made, as though his wife had self-consciously knitted or somehow contrived a husband when she sat alone at night.”
― Eudora Welty, The Collected Stories
