Remembering Frank McCourt

August 1, 2009

It is always said to here of someone dying and it is even more sad when that someone is a person that has contributed so much to society like Frank McCourt did with his many novels and inspiring quotes about life. Not many people had it as hard as Mr. McCourt did early in life yet he was still able to thrive and grace the world with great works of art like Angela’s Ashes. As a reader I will miss his prose and as a writer I will miss his inspiration. I leave you with one of my favorite McCourt quotes to help you deal with the death of this great soul.

I had no accomplishments except surviving. But that isn’t enough in the community where I came from, because everybody was doing it. So I wasn’t prepared for America, where everybody is glowing with good teeth and good clothes and food.
