From this green little island.........

Just some quotes and poetry lines ( a cut and paste job !!) from and about this North Atlantic island.

Personally I'm a Dubliner, Irishness has always been secondary.

This is one race of people for whom psychoanalysis is of no use whatsoever ~ Sigmund Freud

In Ireland the inevitable never happens and the unexpected constantly occurs ~ John Pentland Mahaffy

When anyone asks me about the Irish character, I say look at the trees. Maimed, stark and misshapen, but ferociously tenacious
~ Edna O'Brien

No man, however great, is known to everybody and no man, however solitary, is known to nobody ~ Thomas Moore

Laughter is wine for the soul -- laugh soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness.
Comedy and tragedy step through life together, arm in arm... Once we can laugh, we can live
~ Sean O'Casey

Men always want to be a woman's first love. Women have a more subtle instinct: What they like is to be a man's last romance ~ Oscar Wilde

Some men see things as they are and ask why. Others dream things that never were and ask why not ~ George Bernard Shaw

And as you entered in, a bell would tinkle in the empty shop, a musk Of soap and turf and sweets would hit you from the gloom ~ Ciaran Carson

I absolutely love these ... they sum up the lure of the Irish ... the mystique, the magic, the beauty of their lyrical souls ...
