The Things they Carried book cover

They carried the sky. The whole atmosphere, they carried it, the humidity, the monsoons, the stink of fungus and decay, all of it, they carried gravity.

Taken from the astonishing third novel by Tim O’Brien, The Things they Carried (1990). You can read my take on the book here, in one of my earliest posts.
