"The people she observes are often anonymous, and usually unaware that they’re being watched, much less written about. But there’s nothing threatening about the Long-Winded Lady; her interest in others is dreamily benevolent."

A Maeve Brennan Revival
Until the late nineties, it was impossible to find Brennan on lists of Irish writers; her slow canonization has since begun.

 "It would be nice to think that all those men from the Latin Quarter would came back to the Adano next New Year's Eve... But next New Year's Eve there won't be a 48th Street. A number of houses are already down, and on weekdays the stree is filled with wreckers' dust."

"It is a matter of love and whetehr the love finds, daily, hourly expression in warm embraces and in the instinctive kind of attentiveness animals give themselves to their young or whether it is largely unexpressed as it was amongst the Bagots, does not really matter very much in the long run. It is the solid existence of love that gives life and strength to memory, and if, in some cases, childhood memories lack the soft and tender colors given by demonstrativeness, the child grown old and in the dark knows only that what is under his hand is a rock that will never give way."
~ Maeve Brennan, Christmas Eve

"There is an undeniable charm to being cosseted in the deep banquettes and soft carpeting of La Grenouille, deep in Butterfield 8 country, where the atmosphere is quiet enough for gossip with even the most ancient companion. .... Part of the appeal of the remaining Manhattan bastions is this sort of history. At La Grenouille, the anachronisms live on: damned if the waiters aren’t still ceremoniously sprinkling croutons on your split-pea soup."

"A lady we know has related to us a gaffe that she made at one party, and we consider it typical of what happens when too many people gather in one place merely to drink and chatter. … As the hubbub was reaching its height, she was introduced to a pleasant-faced young man, whose name she understood to be Cudahy. Politely, she asked him the nature of his employment, steeling herself to hear something not necessarily to her advantage about the ins and outs of meat packing. To her surprise, the young man replied that he was in the jewelry business. Our friend said she’d heard that jewelry was a very competitive affair, and the young man said that this might often be the case. She then urged him, in effect, not to be disheartened by the apparent odds against him; sooner or later, fortune would smile on his endeavors. As she was getting off this little homily, she noted a look of increasing bafflement on the young man’s face. Something had evidently gone wrong, and, suddenly panicking, she melted away into the crowd, located her hostess, and asked who in heaven’s name it was that she had been talking to. Whereupon it turned out that the young man’s name wasn’t Cudahy at all; it was Cartier."
