Douglas Hyde: Each of you, every boy or girl among you... you can say as courageously and truly as I did that you are the better person, twice over!But you can not say it without your own language, so do not lose a bit of your Irish, because if you do it is history that you lose. Speak Irish among yourselves, for fear of losing it. And do not be timid- it won't be long before Irish spreads all over the world.
