Quotes About Parnell

It really is more natural to believe a preternatural story, that deals with things we dont understand, than a natural story that contradicts things we do understand. Tell me that the great Mr Gladstone, in his last hours, was haunted by the ghost of Parnell, and I will be agnostic about it. But tell me that Mr Gladstone, when first presented to Queen Victoria, wore his hat in her drawing-room and slapped her on the back and offered her a cigar, and I am not agnostic at all. That is not impossible; its only incredible. But Im much more certain it didnt happen than that Parnells ghost didnt appear; because it violates the laws of the world I do understand.
— G.K. Chesterton —

But surely liking the same things for dinner is one of the deepest and most lasting things you could possibly have in common with anyone,' argued Dr. Parnell. 'After all, the emotions of the heart are very transitory, or so I believe; I should think it makes one much happier to be well-fed than well-loved.

— Barbara Pym

The Irish are people who will never have leaders, for at the great moment they always desert them. They have produced one skeleton
Parnell
never a man.

— James Joyce

But stories that live longest
Are sung above the glass,
And Parnell loved his country
And Parnell loved his lass.

— William Butler Yeats
