  • Physically the Celts are terrifying in appearance, with deep sounding and very harsh voices. In conversation they use few words and speak in riddles, for the most part hinting at things and leaving a great deal to be understood. They frequently exaggerate with the aim of extolling themselves and diminishing the status of others. They are boasters and threateners and given to bombastic self-dramatization, and yet they are quick of mind and with good natural ability for learning.

  • Sunshine, it’s the Celt wanting a little reassurance that I haven’t eaten you or anything. (Vane)

    Sherrilyn Kenyon (2005). “Night Pleasures/Night Embrace”, p.775, Macmillan
  • Answer my question, Bacchus. I’m not one of your dickless Greeks to be kept waiting for an answer. (Camulus) You better take a more civil tone with me, Cam.

Let’s save the fighting for when you two take over the world, okay? (Styxx)

    Fighting   Boys   Wrath

  • The Welsh are not like any other people in Britain, and they know how separate they are. They are the Celts, the tough little wine-dark race who were the original possessors of the island, who never mixed with the invaders coming later from the east, but were slowly driven into the western mountains.

    Wine   Dark   Islands  
    Laurie Lee (2015). “I Can't Stay Long”, p.89, Penguin UK
  • My view is that to get anywhere in life you have to be anti-social, otherwise you'll end up being devoured. I've never been particularly social, anyway, but if I've ever been rude, fifty per cent of it has usually been provoked by other people's attitudes. Though I do admit, like most Celts, I'm moody. It's fine until people try to cheer you up with gems like, 'snap out of it' or 'Come on, now'.

    Cheer   Attitude   Views

    Warrior   Fearless   Soul

    Light   Sight   Would Be  
    Sherrilyn Kenyon (2010). “Night Embrace”, p.39, Macmillan
  • Let go of me, Celt, or I’ll rip your arm off. And you know what? I don’t care if I lose both of mine in the process. That’s the difference between us. Pain is my friend and ally. You fear it. (Zarek)

    Letting Go   Pain   Rip  
    Sherrilyn Kenyon (2005). “Night Pleasures/Night Embrace”, p.546, Macmillan
  • All Gaul is divided into three parts, one of which the Belgae inhabit, the Aquitani another, those who in their own language are called Celts, in ours Gauls, the third.

    Three   Language   Celts  
    Julius Caesar (2014). “The Gallic Wars”, p.3, Simon and Schuster
  • It is now many years that men have resorted to the forest for fuel and the materials of the arts: the New Englander and the New Hollander, the Parisian and the Celt, the farmer and Robin Hood, Goody Blake and Harry Gill; in most parts of the world, the prince and the peasant, the scholar and the savage, equally require still a few sticks from the forest to warm them and cook their food. Neither could I do without them.

    Art   Men   Years  
    Henry David Thoreau (2012). “Walden; Or, Life in the Woods”, p.162, Courier Corporation
  • All Gaul is divided into three parts.

  • He looked at a world of incredible loveliness. Old distaff Celt's blood in some back chamber of his brain moved him to discourse with the birches, with the oaks. A cool green fire kept breaking in the woods and he could hear the footsteps of the dead. Everything had fallen from him. He scarce could tell where his being ended or the world began nor did he care. He lay on his back in the gravel, the earth's core sucking his bones, a moment's giddy vertigo with this illusion of falling outward through blue and windy space, over the offside of the planet, hurtling through the high thin cirrus.

    Fall   Blood   Space  
  • A wounding tongue. I'm working on it. Perhaps its the Celt in me.

    Tongue   Celts  
  • Despite what you may have been taught about Indians or Africans or ancient Celts, poor people are terrible stewards of their environment. For instance, if my kid were starving to death, I would happily feed her fresh panda.

    Kids   People   Pandas  
  • As Dutch, British and French explorers literally put this Great Southern Land on the map it would be ridiculous to say that modern day Australia is anything other than a grand - and successful - outpost of Euro-colonialism and, more specifically Anglo-Celt British colonialism. It's a fact of life like the Euro-colonization of the Americas etc. If it was an outpost of, let's say, Iranian or Zimbabwean colonialism would so many people still be so desperately trying to get into Australia by any means necessary, legal or otherwise? It's doubtful. Thank the Gods for Euro-colonialism!

  • Basque and Celt. Criminals and barbarians. I didn't think there could be a more primitive pairing of genes.

  • After all, in both languages we were dealing in large measure not with English and French, but with Scots and Irish, Bretons and Normans ... There could be no more eloquent illustration of the colonial mind-set than a bunch of Celts and Vikings in a distant northern territory insulting each other as les Anglais and the French as if they were the descendants of the people who had subjected and ruined them.

    "Reflections of a Siamese Twin: Canada at the End of the Twentieth Century". Book by John Ralston Saul, 1997.
  • Authors of all races, be they Greeks, Romans, Teutons, or Celts, Can't seem just to say anything is the thing it is but have to go out of their way to say that it is like something else.

    Writing   Race   Greek  
    Ogden Nash (1954). “Many long years ago”
  • Unlike many other Celts, I cannot claim that Celtic was my first love but I can say that it will be my last love.
