Famous quotes containing the words parliament, ireland and/or belfast:

    A Parliament is that to the Commonwealth which the soul is to the body.... It behoves us therefore to keep the facility of that soul from distemper.
    John Pym (1584–1643)

    Out of Ireland have we come,
    Great hatred, little room
    Maimed us at the start.
    I carry from my mother’s womb
    A fanatic’s heart.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    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)
