“Love … is like nature, but in reverse; first it fruits, then it flowers, then it seems to wither, then it goes deep, deep down into its burrow, where no one sees it, where it is lost from sight, and ultimately people die with that secret buried inside their souls.”


Edna O’Brien, writer



“The usual masculine disillusionment is discovering that a woman has a brain.”
 Margaret Mitchell, Author of "Gone With the Wind".


To gain that which is worth having, it may be necessary to lose everything else.”
- “The Price of My Soul” by Bernadette Devlin, Irish civil rights leader.

“When anyone asks me about the Irish character, I say look at the trees. Maimed, stark and misshapen, but ferociously tenacious.” 


 Edna O'Brien, writer



“For you can't hear Irish tunes without knowing you're Irish, and wanting to pound that fact into the floor.” 
― Jennifer ArmstrongBecoming Mary Mehan
