Meghan O'Rourke

  • Although we have become more open about everything from incest to sex addiction, grief remains strangely taboo. In our culture of display, the sadness of death is largely silent.

  • Time does not obey our commands. You cannot make it holy just because it is disappearing.

Meghan O'Rourke, U.S. poet, critic

(1976)
