„Politika je úchylka obyčejných lidí, kteří - pokud v ní uspějí - stávají se důležitými v očích ještě obyčejnějších lidí.“

„Love is an emotion experienced by the many and enjoyed by the few.“


„A man reserves his true and deepest love not for the species of woman in whose company he finds himself electrified and enkindled, but for that one in whose company he may feel tenderly drowsy.“

„My code of life and conduct is simply this: work hard, play to the allowable limit, disregard equally the good and bad opinion of others, never do a friend a dirty trick, eat and drink what you feel like when you feel like, never grow indignant over anything, trust to tobacco for calm and serenity, bathe twice a day... learn to play at least one musical instrument and then play it only in private, never allow one's self even a passing thought of death, never contradict anyone or seek to prove anything to anyone unless one gets paid for it in cold, hard coin, live the moment to the utmost of its possibilities, treat one's enemies with polite inconsideration, avoid persons who are chronically in need, and be satisfied with life always but never with one's self.“

„What passes for woman’s intuition is often nothing more than man’s transparency.“

„A man may be said to love most truly that woman in whose company he can feel drowsy in comfort.“

„Love is the emotion that a woman feels always for a poodle dog and sometimes for a man.“

„No man can think clearly when his fists are clenched.“


„Great art is as irrational as great music. It is mad with its own loveliness.“

„A poet, any real poet, is simply an alchemist who transmutes his cynicism regarding human beings into an optimism regarding the moon, the stars, the heavens, and the flowers, to say nothing of the spring, love, and dogs.“

„Patriotism is often an arbitrary veneration of real estate above principles.“

„Love is the emotion that a woman feels always for a poodle dog and sometimes for a man“

„Art is the sex of imagination.“ Five Great Modern Irish Plays
