JOHN BOYLE O'REILLY, LL.D.
Irish revolutionist, journalist and poet
(1844 - 1890)

Be silent and safe--silence never betrays you.
      - [Silence]

I am weary of planning and toiling
  In the crowded hives of men;
    Heart weary of building and spoiling
      And spoiling and building again;
        And I long for the dear old river
          Where I dreamed my youth away;
            For a dreamer lives forever,
              And a toiler dies in a day.
      - Cry of the Dreamer [Dreams]

The world is large when its weary leagues two loving hearts divide;
  But the world is small when your enemy is loose on the other side.
      - Distance [Enemies]

The organized charity, scrimped and iced,
  In the name of a cautious, statistical Christ.
      - In Bohemia [Philanthropy]

But the gods are dead--
  Ay, Zeus is dead, and all the gods but Doubt,
    And doubt is brother devil to Despair!
      - Prometheus--Christ [Doubt]

For peace do not hope; to be just you must break it.
  Still work for the minute and not for the year.
      - Rules of the Road [Peace]

Take gifts with a sigh: most men give to be paid.
      - Rules of the Road [Gifts]

What man would be wise, let him drink of the river
  That bears on his bosom the record of time;
    A message to him every wave can deliver
      To teach him to creep till he knows how to climb.
      - Rules of the Road [Experience]

When honor comes to you be ready to take it;
  But reach not to seize it before it is near.
      - Rules of the Road [Honor]

Who heeds not experience, trust him not.
      - Rules of the Road [Experience]

He silent and safe--silence never betrays you.
      - Rules of the Road (st. 2) [Silence]
