Who is patrick henry pearse?

Famous quotes containing the words patrick, henry and/or pearse:

    The loosening, for some people, of rigid role definitions for men and women has shown that dads can be great at calming babies—if they take the time and make the effort to learn how. It’s that time and effort that not only teaches the dad how to calm the babies, but also turns him into a parent, just as the time and effort the mother puts into the babies turns her into a parent.
    —Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)

    Yes, dance. Dance and dream. Dream that you’re Mrs. Henry Jekyll of Harley Street, dancing with your own butler and six footmen. Dream that they’ve all turned into white mice and crawled into an eternal pumpkin.
    John Lee Mahin (1902–1984)

    ‘But where can we draw water,’
    Said Pearse to Connolly,
    ‘When all the wells are parched away?
    O plain as plain can be
    There’s nothing but our own red blood
    Can make a right Rose Tree.’
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
