"A story is not like a road to follow … it’s more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."

"Sometimes our connection is frayed, it is in danger, it seems almost lost. Views and streets deny knowledge of us, the air grows thin. Wouldn’t we rather have a destiny to submit to, than, something that claims us, anything, instead of such flimsy choices, arbitrary days?" - Alice Munro

"就在彼處,他思量道。彼處是我的宿命,我人生旅途的終點。但我的心仍在跳(比平常快,沒錯),我的血仍在流,等我彎腰握住這輛可惡的拖車的車把,我的腰無疑會呻吟,而且我可能會放個屁。什麼也沒改變。"

— Stephen King《黑塔 VII-業之門(下)》P.829

"

這條路及這篇故事都很漫長,你說是不是?路途何其遙,而且代價何其高… 但偉大的事物都不是一蹴可幾的。一篇長故事,就如一座高塔,都必須要一塊石頭、一塊石頭的累積。而今,結局將近,你必須要格外留意彼方那兩名朝我們走來的旅人。年長的-有著雨淋日曬、風霜痕跡的臉,臀上掛著槍-拉著他們稱為何肥二號的拖車。年輕的-腋下挾著特大號的素描簿,看似舊日時光的學子-走在拖車旁。他們正爬上一道長距離的緩升坡,與他們走過的上百個山坡並沒有多大不同。

………..

算了,我們並不是在漫漫長路的最後來這裡緬懷歷史的,而是來觀察老槍客拉著拖車的。我們立在山頂上,等待著他過來。他來了,近了。絲毫不變的鐵石心腸,一個總是學會鄉談俗語(至少學會部分),適應風土民情的人;他仍是一個入住陌生的旅館房間會把畫掛正的人。他是改變了許多,但這點並未變。他登上了山坡,近得我們能嗅到他的汗酸味。他抬頭看,迅捷自動的一眼,先掃過前方,隨即掃向兩旁,一如他登上任何一座山的習慣-隨時掌握優勢,這是寇特的原則,而他唯一倖存的一個學徒並未忘記他的教誨。他抬頭,毫無興趣,低頭… 停下。瞪著雜草叢生的破碎道路片刻之後,他再度抬頭,這次動作較慢,慢得多,彷彿是害怕自以為看見的景象。

而我們也就是在這裡加入了他-融入了他-只是在如此一個時刻,在他畢生追求的目標就近在眼前的一刻,我們要如何掌握羅蘭的心,實在不是我這般無能的說書人所能解釋的。有些時刻是超乎想像力之外的。
