And That’s All We Are, Jefferson, A Piece Of Drifting Wood

Beach Day. iphone 12 Pro iColorama app

And that’s all we are, Jefferson,

all of us on this earth,

a piece of drifting wood.

Until we—each of us, individually—

decide to become something else.

I am still that piece of drifting wood,

and those out there are no better.

But you can be better.

— Ernest Gaines , A Lesson Before Dying
