Three Quotes

  1. Oh, my ways are strange ways and new ways and old ways, And deep ways and steep ways and high ways and low, I'm at home and at ease on a track that I know not, And restless and lost on a road that I know.
  2. Why on earth do we want closer connection with England? We have little in common with English people except our language. We are fast becoming an entirely different people.
  3. When the people are selfish and narrow, when the hands of the tyrants are strong, You must sacrifice life for the public before they come down on a wrong.
