Forrest Gump
by Winston Groom


p.0 There is a pleasure sure in being mad which not but madmen know.
     --Dryden

p.2 Now I know something about idiot. Probly the only thing I do know bout, but I done read up on em--all the way from that Doy-chee-eveskie guy's idiot, to King Lear's fool, and Faulkner's idiot, Benjie, an even ole Boo Radley in To Kill a Mockingbird--now he ws a serious idiot. The one I like best tho is ole Lennie in Of Mice and Men. Mos of them writer fellers got it straight--cause their idiots are always smarter than people give them credit for. Hell, I'd agree with that. Any idiot would. Hee Hee.

p.15 One day a package come from New Yawk City that contain a official baseball signed by the entire New Yawk Yankees baseball team. It was the best thing ever happen to me! I treasure that ball like a goldbrick, till one day when I was tossin it aroun the yard, a big ole dog come up an grasp it outta the air and chewed it up. Things like that always happenin to me.
