“To know what a person has done, and to know who a person is, are very different things.”
Hannah Kent, Burial Rites

“I can turn to that day as though it were a page in a book. It’s written so deeply upon my mind I can almost taste the ink.”
Hannah Kent, Burial Rites

“It’s not fair. People claim to know you through the things you’ve done, and not by sitting down and listening to you speak for yourself.”
Hannah Kent, Burial Rites
