It's my rule never to lose me temper till it would be detrimental to keep it.
Sean O'Casey (The Plough and the Stars, 1960)
When one has reached 81...one likes to sit back and let the world turn by itself, without trying to push it.
Sean O'Casey (Quoted in the New York Times, 1960)
I don't wish you happiness, for happiness has various shapes, good & bad; but I wish you an active and useful life which is the Spring of any happiness due to us.

There's no reason to bring religion into it. I think we ought to have as great a regard for religion as we can, so as to keep it out of as many things as possible.
Sean O'Casey (The Plough and the Stars, 1960)
I have found life an enjoyable, enchanting, active, and sometime terrifying experience, and I've enjoyed it completely. A lament in one ear, maybe, but always a song in the other.
Sean O'Casey
Wealth often takes away chances from men as well as poverty. There is none to tell the rich to go on striving, for a rich man makes the law that hallows and hollows his own life.
Sean O'Casey
Things can never be the same again, and we must learn to tune ourselves to the new rhythm, so that we may live in harmony with ourselves, and so living, live in harmony with others.
Sean O'Casey (Letter)
Here, the churches seemed to shrink away into eroding corners. They seem to have ceased to be essential parts of American life. They no longer give life. It is the huge buildings of commerce.
Sean O'Casey
You cannot put a rope around the neck of an idea: you can not put an idea up against a barracks-square wall and riddle it with bullets: you cannot confine it in the strongest prison cell that your slaves could ever build.
Sean O’Casey
The flame from the angel's sword in the garden of Eden has been catalyzed into the atom bomb; God's thunderbolt became blunted, so man's thunderbolt has become the steel star of destruction.
Sean O'Casey
The military mind is indeed a menace. Old-fashioned futurity that sees only men fighting and dying in smoke and fire; hears nothing more civilized than a cannonade; scents nothing but the stink of battle-wounds and blood.
Sean O'Casey
Here, with whitened hair, desires failing, strength ebbing out of him, with the sun gone down and with only the serenity and the calm warning of the evening star left to him, he drank to life, to all it had been, to what it was, to what it would be.
Sean O'Casey
Disease can never be conquered, can never be quelled by emotion's willful screaming or faith's symbolic prayer. It can only be conquered by the energy of humanity and the cunning in the mind of man. In the patience of a Curie, in the enlightenment of a Faraday, a Rutherford, a Pasteur, a Nightingale, and all other apostles of light and cleanliness, rather than of a woebegone godliness, we shall find final deliverance from plague, pestilence, and famine.
