quotes:
C.S. Lewis
Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.

Eamon De Valera
"...even as a partitioned small nation, we shall go on and strive to play our part in the world, continuing unswervingly to work for the cause of true freedom and for peace and understanding between all nations."

Jonathan Swift
No wise man ever wished to be younger.

Samuel Beckett
We are all born mad. Some remain so.
Notes: Waiting for Godot (1955)

Oliver Goldsmith
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."

George Bernard Shaw
Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

Brendan Behan
I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper, and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer.

Bea Sager
Hills as green as emeralds, cover the countryside,
Lakes as blue as sapphires are Ireland's special pride,
And rivers that shine like silver make Ireland look so fair,
But the friendliness of her people is the richest treasure there.

John Boyle O'Reilly
Ireland is a fruitful mother of genius, but a barren nurse.

George Bernard Shaw
A life making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing at all.
