“You think you know death, but you don't, not until you've seen it, really seen it... And it gets under your skin and lives inside you.

You also think you know life, stand on the edge of things and what you go by but you're not living it, not really, you're just a tourist, a ghost, then you see it, really see it, it gets under your skin and lives inside you, and there's no escape, there's nothing to be done, and you know what? it's good, it's a good thing.

And that’s all I’ve got to say about it.”
Jack O'Connell

“It's an old story, really: seduced and corrupted, in the end, by an obsessive love for the text.”
Jack O'Connell, Word Made Flesh

“Because to live forever with a grief that deforms the heart is unacceptable—an abomination that must not be tolerated.”
Jack O'Connell, The Resurrectionist
