„To get enough to eat was regarded as an achievement. To get drunk was a victory.“

— Brendan Behan
Context: As regards drink, I can only say that in Dublin during the Depression when I was growing up, drunkenness was not regarded as a social disgrace. To get enough to eat was regarded as an achievement. To get drunk was a victory. As quoted in A Contemporary Reader: essays for today and tomorrow, Harry William Rudman, Irving Rosenthal, Ronald Press (1961), p. 334

„I respect kindness in human beings first of all, and kindness to animals. I don't respect the law“

— Brendan Behan
Context: I respect kindness in human beings first of all, and kindness to animals. I don't respect the law; I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer. As quoted in The Harper Book of Quotations (1993) edited by Robert I. Fitzhenry, p. 420

„It's not that the Irish are cynical. It's rather that they have a wonderful lack of respect for everything and everybody.“

— Brendan Behan, Brendan Behan, Interviews and Recollections
As quoted in Brendan Behan, Interviews and Recollections (1982), Vol. 2, edited by E. H. Mikhail, p. 186
