Wisdom of Walker Percy

Six Points to Ponder

  • “I have discovered that most people have no one to talk to, no one, that is, who really wants to listen.”
  • “There is a difference between the way things are and saying the way things are.”
  • “Everydayness is the enemy.”
Walker Percy (Bern and Franke Keating Collection)
  • “No doubt human brotherhood is better than a depersonalized society. But a depersonalized society is better than one threatened by violence.”
  • “But envy is not merely sorrow at another’s good it is also joy at another’s misfortune.”
  • “The enduring is something which must be accounted for. One cannot simply shrug it off.”
