eBook You Can't Go Home Again Re: _You Can't Go Home Again _ (1940) By Thomas Wolfe(I read to page 195 but did not finish the book.)Added 3/1/11.This is very dense reading, but I was floored by its beauty. I copied the following quote by hand, before the days of computers:=========================== "Some things will never change. Some things will always be the same. Lean down your ear upon the earth and listen. "The voice of forest water in the night, a woman's laughter in the dark, the clean, hard rattle of raked gravel, the cricketing stitch of midday in hot meadows, the delicate web of children's voices in bright air--these things will never change. "The glitter of sunlight on roughened water, the glory of the stars, the innocence of morning, the smell of the sea in harbors, the feathery blur and smoky buddings of young boughs, and something there that comes and goes and never can be captured, the thorn of spring, the sharp and tongueless cry--these things will always be the same. "All things belonging to the earth will never change--the leaf, the blade, the flower, the wind that cries and sleeps and wakes again, the trees whose stiff arms clash and tremble in the dark, and the dust of lovers long since buried in the earth--all things proceeding from the earth to seasons, all things that lapse and change and come again upon the earth--these things will always be the same, for they come up from the earth that never changes, they go back into the earth that lasts forever. Only the earth endures, but it endures forever. "The tarantula, the adder, and the asp will also never change. Pain and death will always be the same. But under the pavements trembling like a pulse, under the buildings trembling like a cry, under the waste of time, under the hoof of the beast above the broken bones of cities, there will be something growing like a flower, something bursting from the earth again, forever deathless, faithful, coming into life again like April."-Thomas Wolfe, "You Can't Go Home Again", p.40 of the Signet Edition=================================I didn't get much further than that in the book. The print was small the the prose was dense. (My notes show that I read to page 195.)I found the following quote of Wolfe's at Goodreads:**************************************"You can't go back home to your family, back home to your childhood, back home to romantic love, back home to a young man's dreams of glory and of fame, back home to exile, to escape to Europe and some foreign land, back home to lyricism, to singing just for singing's sake, back home to aestheticism, to one's youthful idea of 'the artist' and the all-sufficiency of 'art' and 'beauty' and 'love,' back home to the ivory tower, back home to places in the country, to the cottage in Bermude, away from all the strife and conflict of the world, back home to the father you have lost and have been looking for, back home to someone who can help you, save you, ease the burden for you, back home to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting but which are changing all the time--back home to the escapes of Time and Memory."— Thomas WolfeFROM: http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/show/...*************************************Below is another quote copied from a newsgroup (It's actually a shortened version of the one above):~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~"You can't go back home to your family--To a young man's dream of fame and glory,To the country cottage away from strife and conflict,To the father you have lost,To the old forms and systems of things,Which seemed everlasting but are changing all the time."--Thomas Wolfe (1900-1938)_You Can't Go Home Again_ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Some day I should go back and try reading this book again... in larger print. :).

Bestseller Ebook You Can't Go Home Again Written in 1934, nothing has changed. People still fall in love, get hurt, have dreams, kill, lie and cheat. There was a total lack of respect for the earth then as now. Overbuilding and greed were rampant then, no worse and not better than now. Greed drives need.Still, a good story of hope, perseverance and victory of the spirit.
