“Who keeps his tongue keeps his friends.”

“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.”

Land without rent to you.
A child every year to you.
And if you can’t go to heaven,
May you at least die in Ireland.”

And may the friends gathered below it never fall out.”
‘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.”
