Counting is What Counts

O'Connor, ''The River'' -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

" 'You count now,' the preacher said. 'You didn't even count before'."

I felt that this quote was significant because it describes how Harry/Bevel wanted to change. Through this quote we can see that before he didn't count and now that he is trying to lay his burdens down, he counts. At first when I read this quote, I was shocked, because it seemed so blunt, but after finishing the story I felt that it had a connection with the change that Harry/Bevel was searching for in his life.
