Who is Mary McCarthy?

Famous quotes containing the words mccarthy and/or mary:

    ... it was religion that saved me. Our ugly church and parochial school provided me with my only aesthetic outlet, in the words of the Mass and the litanies and the old Latin hymns, in the Easter lilies around the altar, rosaries, ornamented prayer books, votive lamps, holy cards stamped in gold and decorated with flower wreaths and a saint’s picture.
    —Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    It is the space inside that gives the drum its sound.
