Quote #1

SAM CRAIG: He was organist at church, wasn’t he? – Hm, drank a lot, we used to say. JOE STODDARD: Nobody was supposed to know about it. He’d seen a peck of trouble. Behind his hand. Took his own life, y’know? SAM: Oh, did he? JOE: Hung himself in the attic. They tried to hush it up, but of course it got around. He chose his own epy-taph. You can see it there. It ain’t a verse exactly. (III.58-61)


For some, death is more attractive than life.
