Haunted - Chuck Palahniuk

This quote was added by weesin
Think of a rock polisher - one of those drums, goes round and round, rolls twenty-four-seven, full of water and rocks and gravel. Grinding it all up. Round and round. Polishing those ugly rocks into gemstones. That's the earth. Why it goes around. We're the rocks. And what happens to us - the drama and pain and joy and war and sickness and victory and abuse - why, that's just the water and sand to erode us. Grind us down. To polish us up, nice and bright.

Once again @anjo, what is the point of re-ryping the quote with errors as a comma?
