As quoted in The Harper Book of Quotations (1993) edited by Robert I. Fitzhenry, p. 420
Kontext: 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 A Contemporary Reader: essays for today and tomorrow, Harry William Rudman, Irving Rosenthal, Ronald Press (1961), p. 334

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