The Quiet Man love video quotes

from 1952 movie with Maureen O'Hara as Mary Kate Danaher and John Wayne as Sean Thornton.
He was born and bred in Ireland
In a town called Castlemaine
He was his father's only son
His mother's pride and joy
And dearly did his parents love
This wild colonial boy
He's a nice, quiet, peace-loving man, come home to Ireland to forget his troubles. Sure, yes, he's a millionare, you know, like all the Yanks. But he's eccentric! Wait 'til I show his bag to sleep in a sleeping bag, he calls it! Here, let me show you how it operates.

Sean Thornton: If anybody had told me six months ago, that today I'd be in a graveyard in Inisfree with a girl like you that I'm just about to kiss...
Mary Kate Danaher: The kiss is a long way off yet!
Sean Thornton: Ha?
Mary Kate Danaher: We just started the courting and next month we'll walk together, and the month after that there'll be the trashing party...
Sean Thornton: No.
Mary Kate Danaher: Maybe we won't have to wait that month...
Sean Thornton: Yup.
Mary Kate Danaher: ...or for the trashing party...
Sean Thornton: No.
Mary Kate Danaher: ...or for the walking out together.
Sean Thornton: No.
Mary Kate Danaher: And so much the worse for you, Sean Thornton, for I feel the same way about it myself.


Sean Thornton: Well, some things a man doesn't get over so easy.
Mary Kate Danaher: Like what, supposin'?
Sean Thornton: Like the sight of a girl coming through the fields with the sun on her hair... kneeling in church with a face like a saint...
Mary Kate Danaher: Saint indeed!
Sean Thornton: ...and now coming to a man's house to clean it for him.
Mary Kate Danaher: But... that was just my way of bein' a good Christian act.
Sean Thornton: I know it was, Mary Kate Danaher. And it was nice of you.
Mary Kate Danaher: Not at all.


Sean Thornton: I don't know. Maybe she doesn't love me enough.
Reverend Cyril Playfair: It's a difficult situation. I think you'll find the right answer in God's good time. And when that time comes, I hope I'm still here.


Father Peter Lonergan, Narrator: Woman, Ireland may be a poor country, God help us. But here, a married man sleeps in a bed, not a bag!


Lo, young May moon is beamin' love
The glow of one's lamp is gleamin' love
How sweet to row through Mourner's Grove
While the drowsy world is dreamin'...
