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

—  Brendan Behan

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.

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

—  Brendan Behan

As quoted in A Contemporary Reader: essays for today and tomorrow, Harry William Rudman, Irving Rosenthal, Ronald Press (1961), p. 334
Kontext: 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.
