Mortality Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

[John:] The position of Mr. Pignati's head on the floor made his face look a little like my father's and I didn't like the feeling it gave me. Up until then I had never been particularly disturbed about seeing a corpse—even when I'd have to sit for an hour or so at a funeral parlor when some relative had died.

Again, we learn that John has some filial feelings for his father, and that he dreads his father's death. (These reflections do not, however, appear to change John's behavior toward his father.)
