Decline and Fall

He was my dad, a good-hearted sort of fellow but rough, as I was telling you; he used to knock my poor mother about something awful. Got jugged for it twice, buy my! he took it our of her when he got out. There aren't many left like him nowadays, what with education and whisky the price it is.

Quoted on May 21, 2010

'I don't believe,' said Mr. Prendergast, 'that people would ever fall in love or want to be married if they hadn't been told about it. It's like abroad: no one would want to go there if they hadn't been told it existed. Don't you agree?'
