Saint Patrick's Day Quotes, Sayings, Epigrams and Proverbs

By Rob Kall

some words of wisdom, insight and humor from Ireland.

::::::::

here are some words of wisdom, insight and humor from Ireland.
An article on Irish Central primed the pump for this article.
Please add your favorites as a comment.

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

~~~~

May there always be work for your hands to do,
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane,
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you,
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

~~~~

May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.

~~~~

Always remember to forget

The things that made you sad.
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

~~~~

Tis better to buy a small bouquet

And give to your friend this very day,
Than a bushel of roses white and red
To lay on his coffin after he's dead.

~~~~

Life is like a cup of tea,
it's all in how you make it!

~~~~

We cannot share this sorrow
If we haven't grieved a while.
Nor can we feel another's joy
Until we've learned to smile.

~~~~

For the test of the heart is trouble

And it always comes with years.
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth
Is the smile that shines through the tears.

~~~~

What is Irish diplomacy?
It's the ability to tell a man to go to hell,
So that he will look forward to making the trip.
