O Paddy dear, and did you hear the news that going round?; The shamrock is forbid by law to grow on Irish ground;; St. Patrick's Day no more we'll keep, his colours can't be seen; For there's a bloody law against the wearing of the green;
Does it really matter what these affectionate people do - so long as they don't do it in the streets and frighten the horses!
__Mrs. Patrick Campbell - Speaking of some actors reputed to be homosexuals
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball.
__James Patrick Murray
I hope you have lost your good looks, for while they last any fool can adore you, and the adoration of fools is bad for the soul. No, give me a ruined complexion and a lost figure and sixteen chins on a farmyard of Crow's feet and an obvious wig. Then you shall see me coming out strong.
__George Bernard Shaw, to Mrs. Patrick Campbell
