Seán O’Casey (born 30 March 1880, died 18 September 1964) 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.

Quotes:

  1. Money doesn’t make you happy but it quiets the nerves.
  2. When it was dark, you always carried the sun in your hand for me.
  3. All the world’s a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.
  4. Politics has slain its thousands, but religion has slain its ten thousands.
  5. Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.
  6. 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.
  7. You can’t put a rope around the neck of an idea. You can’t put an idea up against the barrack-square wall and riddle it with bullets. You can’t confine it in the strongest prison cell your slaves could ever build.

Writing quotes:

  1. The poet is a madman lost in adventure.
  2. I am the Empire at the end of the decadence.
  3. A poem is really a kind of machine for producing the poetic state by means of words.
