"My God, that bloody casket has fallen on the floor! Some people were hammering in the next flat and it fell off its bracket. The lid has come off and whatever was inside it has certainly got out. Upon the demon-ridden pilgrimage of human life, what next I wonder?"

--Iris Murdoch, The Sea, the Sea

Murdoch was born in Dublin on this date in 1919.
