Quote from A Narrative of the Life of David Crockett, of the State of Tennessee.

by Jim Morgan

This closed my career as a warrior, and I am glad of it, for I like life now a heap better than I did then; and I am glad all over that I lived to see these times, which I should not have done if I had kept fooling along in war, and got used up at it. When I say I am glad, I just mean I am glad I am alive, for there is a confounded heap of things I an’t glad of at all.
