Quotes

1. “Luck is believing you’re lucky.” — Tennessee Williams

2. “Being Irish is very much a part of who I am. I take it everywhere with me.” — Colin Farrell

13. Irish diplomacy is the ability to tell a man to go to hell so that he looks forward to making the trip.

19. An old Irish recipe for longevity: Leave the table hungry. Leave the bed sleepy. Leave the bar thirsty.

20. May God bless and keep in good health your enemies’ enemies.

21. If God sends you down a stony path, may he give you strong shoes.

22. May the Good Lord take a liking to you … but not too soon!

23. Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you.

24. May the blessings of each day be the blessings you need most.

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

Toasts

26. “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!”

27. “When money’s tight and hard to get, and your horse is also ran, when all you have is a heap of debt, a pint of plain is your only man.”

28. “When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let’s all get drunk, and go to heaven!”

29. “May your home always be too small to hold your friends. Here’s to me, and here’s to you. And here’s to love and laughter. I’ll be true as long as you. And not one moment after.”
