Finley Peter Dunne
Thí dead ar-re always popílar. I knowed a society wanst to vote a monyment to a man aní refuse to help his famíly, all in wan night.
Dunne quotes
A fanatic is a man that does what he thinks th' Lord wud do if He knew th' facts iv th' case.
In England a man is presoomed to be innocent till he's proved guilty an' they take it f 'r granted he's guilty. In this counthry a man is presoomed to be guilty ontil he's proved guilty an' afther that he's presoomed to be innocent.

Dunne Finley Peter quotes
Thrust ivrybodyóbut cut th' ca-ards.
Dunne Finley Peter
Th' newspaper does ivrything f'r us. It runs th' polis foorce an' th' banks, commands th' milishy, controls th' ligislachure, baptizes th' young, marries th' foolish, comforts th' afflicted, afflicts th' comfortable, buries th' dead an' roasts thim aftherward.
