A merry heart lives long.

An Irishman is never drunk as long he can hold onto one blade of grass and not fall off the face of the earth.

As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point in the wrong direction!

Beautiful young people are acts of nature,
But beautiful old people are works of art.

Cheerfulness is a sign of wisdom.

Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.

Erin Go Bragh

Erin Go Bragh
Bring my pipe and fill its bowl,
Tthat I may puff to sooth my soul.
For it is sure to clear my brain,
And bring old memories back again!

For each petal on the shamrock

This brings a wish your way
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

Here’s to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold beer—and another one!

Here’s to fine wine, women, and song.
And here’s to workdays that aren’t too long.
Here’s to shoes that always fit.
And here’s to you, you silly shit!

Here’s wishing you the top o’ life without a single tumble.
Here’s wishing you the smiles o’ life and not a single grumble.
Here’s wishing you the best o’ life and not a claw about it.
Here’s wishing you the joy in life and not a day without it.

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

May God bless and keep in good health your enemies' enemies.

May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel,
so nothing can harm you.

May misfortune follow you the rest of your life, but never catch up.

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 the leprechauns be near you to spread luck along your way!

May the leprechauns dance over your bed and bring you sweet dreams.

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.

And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

May the saddest day of your future be no worse
Than the happiest day of your past.

May the sun shine all day long,
Everything go right and nothing go wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you
And may all the wishes you wish come true!

May those that love us, love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles
So we will know them by their limping.

May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.

May you get all your wishes but one so you always have something to strive for!

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.

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

May you live long,
Die happy,
And rate a mansion in heaven.

May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

May your day be filled with blessings
Like the sun that lights the sky,
And may you always have the courage
To spread your wings and fly.

May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you’re dead.

May your home always be too small to hold all your friends.

May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light
May good luck pursue you each morning and night.

May your right hand always
Be stretched out in friendship
And never in want.

May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks.
May your heart be as light as a song.
May each day bring you bright happy hours,
That stay with you all year long.

May your troubles be less
And your blessings be more.
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door.

St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time - a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.- Adrienne Cook

The light heart lives long.

The mills of God grind slowly but they grind finely.

There are many good reasons for drinking,
One has just entered my head.
If a man doesn’t drink when he’s living,
How in the hell can he drink when he’s dead?

Time is a great story teller.

Tis better by far at the rainbows end to find not a pot of gold but the heart of a friend.

Two shorten the road.

Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.

Your My Pot of Gold!
