MojaveThese passages from the first few pages of L'Amour's Mojave Crossing pretty much sum up life so far:

There's more snares in a woman's long lashes than all the creek bottoms in Tennessee.

Even a good woman with her ways and notions, can create more trouble than a good man can shoot his way out of. And I had a notion that this here was no good woman.

Nobody ever claimed I was much of a businessman, least of all me. But if a body can buy cheap and sell high, he just naturally ain't never liable to starve.

Seems to me there's enough trouble in this world without borrowing more with careless words.
