Some people were laughing at an Irishman who won a race for saying, "Well, I'm first at last." "You needn't laugh," said he; "Sure, wasn't I behind before?"
Notes: from W.R. Fanu's Book "70 Years of Irish History" 1896

George Bernard Shaw
First love is only a little foolishness and a lot of curiosity.

Robert Lynd
I am a confirmed believer in blessings in disguise. I prefer them undisguised when I myself happen to be the person blessed; in fact, I can scarcely recognize a blessing in disguise except when it is bestowed upon someone else.

Samuel Glover
But all husbands are geese, though our pride it may shock,
From the first 'twas ordained so by Nature, I fear;
Ould Adam himself was the first of the flock,
And Eve, with her apple sauce, cook'd him, my dear."
Notes: From the poem Dermott O'Dowd

Thomas Daly
Flo was fond of Ebenezer
"Eb," for short, she called her beau.
Talk of tides of love, great Caesar!
You should see them - Eb and Flo.
Notes: (1871-1948)

Brendan Behan
"I am married to Beatrice Salkeld, a painter. We have no children, except me."

God then made man. The Italians for their beauty. The French for their cuisine. The Welsh for their voices. The Germans for their cars. And on and on until He looked at what He had created and said, "This is all very well, but no-one is having fun. I'll have to make an Irishman."

Oscar Wilde
Bigamy is having one wife/husband too many. Monogamy is the same.

Oscar Wilde
I like men who have a future and women who have a past.

George Bernard Shaw
Do not do unto others as you would they should do unto you; their tastes may not be the same.
