Famous quotes containing the words parliament, ireland and/or belfast:
“At the ramparts on the cliff near the old Parliament House I counted twenty-four thirty-two-pounders in a row, pointed over the harbor, with their balls piled pyramid-wise between them,there are said to be in all about one hundred and eighty guns mounted at Quebec,all which were faithfully kept dusted by officials, in accordance with the motto, In time of peace prepare for war; but I saw no preparations for peace: she was plainly an uninvited guest.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Come, fix upon me that accusing eye.
I thirst for accusation. All that was sung.
All that was said in Ireland is a lie
Breed out of the contagion of the throng,
Saving the rhyme rats hear before they die.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
“Is it true or false that Belfast is north of London? That the galaxy is the shape of a fried egg? That Beethoven was a drunkard? That Wellington won the battle of Waterloo? There are various degrees and dimensions of success in making statements: the statements fit the facts always more or less loosely, in different ways on different occasions for different intents and purposes.”
—J.L. (John Langshaw)
