the Old Man quotes

Fight. You must fight. Fight!

You must excuse them. They are farmers here. They are afraid of everyone and everything. They are afraid of rain, and no rain. The summer may be too hot, or the winter too cold. If the sow has no pigs, the farmer is afraid he may starve. If she has too many pigs, he is afraid she may starve.

They are farmers. They talk of nothing but fertilizer and women. I have never shared their enthusiasm for fertilizer. As for women, I became indifferent when I was eighty-three.

At my age, a little excitement is welcome.

Don't worry. Why would he kill me? Bullets cost money.

The fighting is over. Your work is done. For them, each season has its tasks. If there were a season for gratitude, they'd show it more.
