    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The Gaelic League is founded not upon hatred of England, but upon love of Ireland. Hatred is a negative passion; it is powerful - a very powerful destroyer; but it is useless for building up. Love, on the other hand, is like faith; it can move mountains, and faith, we have mountains to move.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“How many Irishmen are there who would purchase material prosperity at such a price? It is exactly such a question as this and the answer to it that shows the difference between the English and Irish race. Nine Englishmen out of ten would jump to make the exchange, and I firmly believe that nine Irishmen out of ten would indignantly refuse it.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Englishmen have very noble and excellent qualities which I should like to see imitated here, but I should not like to imitate them in everything.
