“…more than anybody wants to hear.”

Telling a story is like reaching into a granary full of wheat and drawing out a handful.  There is always more to tell than can be told.  As almost any barber can testify, there is also more than needs to be told, and more than anybody wants to hear.

Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow.
