Here's to lying, stealing, and cheating!
May you lie to save a friend;
May you steal the heart of the one you love;
and may you cheat death.

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!

Walls for the wind
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks beside the fire.
Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you.
And all that your heart may desire.

I could have wealth beyond my dreams,
But where is the joy in that?
And I could travel the seven seas,
But I would always come back.
Everyone could know my name,
And there would be no peace.
I could have undying love,
And heartaches still increase.
No, if I were wealthy beyond my dreams
(And where is the joy in that?)
It wouldn't buy friendship such as yours --
And there IS joy in that!

A world of wishes at your command,
God and his angels close at hand,
Friends and family, their love impart,
And Irish blessings in your heart!

May the sound of happy music
And the lilt of Irish laughter
Fill your heart with gladness
That stays forever after.

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 you work like you don't need the money,
Love like you've never been hurt, and
Dance like no one is watching.

Dance as though no one is watching you,
Love as though you have never loved before,
Sing as though no one can hear you,
Live as though heaven is on earth.

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 your coffin!
May your coffin have six handles of finest silver!
May your coffin be carried by six fair young maids!
And may your coffin be made of finest wood
from a 100-year-old tree,
that I'll go plant tomorrow!

May you live forever
And may the last words you hear be mine!

Here's to us!
Who's like us?
Darned few, and they're all dead!

May those who 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'll know them by their limping.

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

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 the enemies of Ireland never meet a friend

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

May the roof above us never fall in.
And may the friends gathered below it never fall out.

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

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 green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you

Here's to the four hinges of society.
May you fight, steal, lie and drink.
When you fight, may you fight for your country.
When you steal, may you steal away from bad company.
When you lie, may you lie at the side of your sweetheart.
And when you drink, may you drink with me.

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

May God grant you many years to live,
For sure He must be knowing.
The earth has angels all too few,
And heaven is overflowing.

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

May I see you gray
And combing your grandchildren's hair.

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

Proverbs

It's easy to be pleasant when life flows by like a song.
But the man worth while is the one who can smile
When everything goes dead wrong.

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.

Drinking is the only way to find out whether or not your neck leaks!

When Irish eyes are smiling,
watch your step!

An Irishman is never drunk as long as he can hold onto one blade of grass to keep him from falling off the earth.

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

He who loses money, loses much;
He who loses a friend, loses more;
He who loses faith, loses all.

Mothers and fathers hold their children's hands for just a little while...
And their hearts forever.

Many people will walk in and out or your life,
but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.

Here's to a sweetheart, a bottle, and a friend.
The first beautiful, the second full, the last ever faithful.

Oby Bóg dał Ci wiele lat życia
Bowiem z pewnością wiedzieć musi
że na ziemi aniołow zbyt mało
A w niebie aż nadto się dusi
