Irish Quotes about Life
I wasn’t close to my father, but I wanted to be all my life. He had a funny sense of humor, and he laughed all the time – good and loud, like I do. He was a gay Irish gentleman and very good-looking. And he wanted to be close to me, too, but we never had much time together.
The Irish Catholic side was married to the life of an actor and I found out acting could be a form of prayer.
I think there’s nothing better than laughing in life, so that’s nice, to be thought of as someone who can make someone laugh. It’s because I think life is hard. You know, my dad was a really silly man. A great Irish silly man. And that’s fine.

The food that enters the mind must be watched as closely as the food that enters the body.
I eat merely to put food out of my mind.
Food is not about impressing people. It’s about making them feel comfortable.

Irish Quotes on Retirement
There are some who start their retirement long before they stop working.
Preparation for old age should begin no later than one’s teens. A life which is empty of purpose until 65 will not suddenly become filled on retirement.
The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off.
Retirement requires the invention of a new hedonism, not a return to the hedonism of youth

Irish Quotes about Home
I always went to Ireland as a child. I remember trips to Dundalk, Oxford, Cork and Dublin. My gran was born in Dublin, and we had a lot of Irish friends, so we’d stay on their farms and go fishing. They were fantastic holidays – being outdoors all day and coming home to a really warm welcome in the evenings.
I grew up middle class – my dad was a high school teacher; there were five kids in our family. We all shared a nine-hundred-square-foot home with one bathroom. That was exciting. And my wife is Irish Catholic and also very, very barely middle class.
