William Butler Yeats
The problem with some people is that when they aren't drunk they're sober.

William Butler Yeats
Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all that we will know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you and I sigh.

Unknown Author
To Age! To Age! Why does one care?
As the wrinkles grow longer and gray graces your hair.
Life should be simple because when push comes to shove,
The only one counting is the good Lord above!

Unknown Author
When the roaring flames of your love have burned down to embers,
may you find that you've married your best friend.

John Locke
O Ireland isn't it grand you look--
Like a bride in her rich adornin?
And with all the pent-up love of my heart
I bid you the top o' the mornin!

Nancy O'Keeefe
Maybe it's bred in the bone, but the sound of pipes is a little bit of heaven to some of us.

George Best
I spent 90% of my money on woman and drink. The rest I wasted.

Winston Churchill
"We have always found the Irish a bit odd. They refuse to be English."

Sean O'Casey
"All the world's a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed."

Eamon De Valera
Could he not find in his heart the generosity to acknowledge that there is a small nation that stood alone not for one year or two, but for several hundred years against aggression; that endured spoliations, famines, massacres in endless succession; that was clubbed many times into insensibility, but that each time on returning [to] consciousness took up the fight anew; a small nation that could never be got to accept defeat and has never surrendered her soul.
Notes: on Victory Day in Europe, May 8, 1945, responding in a radio speech to criticism by Winston Churchill of Ireland's neutrality in World War II, a speech in which De Valera also thanked Churchill for not invading Ireland.
