May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.
Top o’ the mornin’ to ya. Hope this day finds you loved.
Because you are.
We all could use a little Irish luck. And certainly a little Irish proverbial wisdom…
When a twig grows hard it is difficult to twist it. Every beginning is weak.
If you do not sow in the spring you will not reap in the autumn.
It is not a secret if it is known by three people.
A friend’s eye is a good mirror.
Even a small thorn causes festering.
Good as drink is, it ends in thirst.
It is a long road that has no turning.
Put silk on a goat, and it’s still a goat.
You’ll never plough a field by turning it over in your mind.
There is no need like the lack of a friend.
There is no luck except where there is discipline.
There are two tellings to every story.
The light heart lives long.
Hunger is a good sauce.
The work praises the man.
It is a third of the work to begin.
People live in each other’s shelter.
Instinct is stronger than upbringing.
Distant hills look green.
It takes time to build castles.
Better be quarreling than lonesome.
Praise the child and you praise the mother.
Life is like a cup of tea, it’s all in how you make it.
The older the fiddle, the sweeter the tune.
As you ramble through life, whatever be your goal, keep your eye upon the doughnut, and not upon the hole.
God is good, but never dance in a small boat.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you.
May it be filled with shamrocks, leprechauns, dancing and cheer with green beer.
Hope you don’t get pinched.

Happy St. Patty’s to those three beautiful boys–kiss them all for me, please!
