I think being a woman is like being Irish… Everyone says you’re important and nice, but you take second place all the time.
~ Iris Murdoch
Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy. ~ W.B. Yeats
I’m Irish!…When I feel well I feel better than anyone, when I am in pain I yell at the top of my lungs, and when I am dead I shall be deader than anybody.
~ Morgan Llywelyn
