Seven Quotes

  1. All the world’s a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.
  2. When it was dark, you always carried the sun in your hand for me.
  3. Laughter is wine for the soul-laughter soft, or loud and deep, tinged through with seriousness-the hilarious declaration made by man that life is worth living.
  4. Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.
  5. You cannot put a rope around the neck of an idea; you cannot put an idea up against the barrack-square wall and riddle it with bullets; you cannot confine it in the strongest prison cell your slaves could ever build.
  6. Money does not make you happy but it quiets the nerves.
  7. Politics has slain its thousands, but religion has slain its ten thousands.

O’Casey was an Irish dramatist and memoirist who wrote about life in the slums of Dublin in plays like The Shadow of a Gunman  and The Plough and the Stars.
