Kathleen Hirsch

  • We move in a river of talk. We are the stories we tell one another, the myths we live by. So much of who we are comes from the stew of plots over which those before us have argued fiercely, shaded and shaped and simply come to claim. Because our days in a place deposit their own truths like minerals in our bones.

Kathleen Hirsch, U.S. writer

(1953)
