Kate O'Brien

  • ... love and life cannot help but marry and stay married with an exhausting violence of fidelity.

  • I have sometimes believed that I could see shadows spread under people's eyes when they were being frantically bored. I have seen faces age and sag under the onslaught of amiable extroversion ...

  • A laugh is a terrible weapon ...

  • ... the way to achieve a difficult thing was to set it in motion.

  • Would the world ever be run by anything better than personal passion, and the scoring off each other of amoral schoolboys?

Kate O'Brien, Irish playwright, novelist, journalist

(1897 - 1974)
