American Pastoral quotes

  • [last lines]

    Nathan Zuckerman: [narrating funeral] You come at people with an open mind, and yet you never fail to get them wrong. You get them wrong while you're with them, or you tell someone about them and get them wrong again. That's how we know we're alive. We are wrong. About the Swede, how life was going to open its arms and shower blessings upon him, I was never more wrong about anyone in my life.

  • Penny Hamlin: I don't blame you, Mr Levov. I don't blame either one of you. You didn't go out and buy the dynamite and make the bomb. You didn't plant the bomb. I feel badly for you both. The two of you... are as much victims of this tragedy as we are. I lost a husband. My kids lost a father. But the difference is that for us... we will survive as a family, a loving family. We will survive with our memories intact and our memories to sustain us. We are the same family we were when Russ was here and we will survive. That's the difference.
