John Steinbeck East of Eden:

“The Irish are said to be a happy people, full of jokes. They’re not. They’re a dark people with a gift for suffering way past their deserving. It’s said that without whiskey to soak and soften the world, they’d kill themselves. But they tell jokes because it’s expected of them.”

on a happier note …

“My father said she was a strong woman, and I believe a strong woman may be stronger than a man, particularly if she happens to have love in her heart. I guess a loving woman is almost indestructible.”
