McCarthy: To Deserve Her

We’ll be married sixty years April twenty-second.

That’s a long time.

Yes it is. It don’t seem like it, but it is… There aint been a day passed in sixty years I aint thanked God for that woman. I never done nothin to deserve her, I can tell you that. I dont know what you could do.

– Cormac McCarthy, Cities of the Plain (p. 235)
