Forum: Mary Holland lecture by Conor O' Clery
As we all know, death is as inevitable as taxes. And just as inevitable is the fact that we who are still living will judge a person – and will formulate their legacy - by their best use of their talents and their resilience in the face of life’s setbacks. Which again sums up the legacy of Mary Holland, who continues to inspire us today.
Forum: Professor Tom Inglis
It is so easy, when people are dying, to assume what they want to hear, but there is always a danger that what we say does not provide the comfort we think, but that it is, rather, a form of symbolical domination, of forcing words and meanings on them that are not their own.
