Every journey in the past is complicated by delusions, false memories, false namings of real events.
Adrienne Rich

Lying is done with words and also with silence.
Adrienne Rich

Responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking and naming for you; it means learning to respect and use your own brains and instincts; hence, grappling with hard work.
Adrienne Rich

In memory of Adrienne Rich, RIP

Adrienne Rich is much mourned, she was a poet's poet.
The first quote really rings a bell for me - everyone has different memories of the same event. Sometimes when we are all together, talking about a vacation, for instance, it seems everyone had a different set of parents, siblings and each asserts that's the way it was - all a matter of perception. And of course, I had a different set of kids, too
