Hi GT,
In honor of today, I want to know who your favorite Irish authors, poets, and artists are! Here are a few of my own (complete with quotes):

-William Butler Yeats

" Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with the golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams beneath your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams."
-He Wishes For The Cloths of Heaven

-
George Bernard Shaw

"I hear you say 'Why?' Always 'Why?' You see things; and you say 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say 'Why not?'"
-Back To Methuselah
*
I love this quote so much that it is in both my OKC profile, and my LinkedIn.

-Oscar Wilde

"To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance."
-Phrases and Philosophies For The Use Of The Young

SPECIAL BONUS ROUND:
I also love Queen Medb



and the The Morrígan.

I know that they're not authors, poets, or artists....but they're too bad ass not to be included here.

So GT, who are some of your favorites?
