Maurice Cockrill (1936–2013)

“Cockrill always seemed to me very young in spirit, always looking, always searching, always seeing the world with new eyes. The idea of repeating a formula is something I’ve always been afraid of: I don’t like the idea that you can ever know what you’re doing. I’m looking for something I don’t quite know about. So, I think, was he.” ~ Margaret Drabble
