March 25, 2005 - Good Friday, Lady Day

[Mary] Flannery O'Connor was born on this day in 1925.
She died in of lupus in 1964 at the age of 39. Two quotes:

"I come from a family where the only emotion respectable to show is irritation. In some this tendency produces hives, in others literature, in me both."

"I suppose I divide people into 2 classes; the Irksome and the Non-Irksome."
I keep a copy of the complete collection of O'Connor's stories on the bookshelf near my bedside.
