Angela’s Ashes – From the Pulitzer Prize Winning Memoir By Frank McCourt

“When I look back on my childhood I wonder how I survived at all. It was, of course, a miserable childhood: the happy childhood is hardly worth your while. Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood, and worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood.”

– Frank McCourt, Angela’s Ashes

“You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace.”

– Frank McCourt, Angela’s Ashes

“The master says it’s a glorious thing to die for the Faith and Dad says it’s a glorious thing to die for Ireland and I wonder if there’s anyone in the world who would like us to live.” 

– Frank McCourt, Angela’s Ashes

“Stock your mind. It is your house of treasure and no one in the world can interfere with it.”

– Frank McCourt
