The Big Sleep – “The Big Sleep” – Raymond Chandler

June 26th, 2011 · No Comments · Fiction, Noir, Quotes, Religion

What did it matter where you lay once you were dead? In a dirty sump or in a marble tower on top of a high hill? You were dead, you were sleeping the big sleep, you were not bothered by things like that. Oil and water were the same as wind and air to you. You just slept the big sleep, not caring about the nastiness of how you died or where you fell.
