Great Irish Proverbs

"Laughter is brightest in the place where food is."
(found on Jo and Sue cooking blog)

"All happy endings are beginnings as well."
p.s. Happy Endings is an awesome tv show.  Check it out if you haven't already discovered it.

"A narrow neck keeps the bottle from being emptied in one swig."

"A ring on a good woman's finger is no good without a blouse on her back."
(= Hey, don't be a skank!)

"Be kind to those that meet you as you rise, you may pass them again as you fall."

"Handfuls make a load."
(Haha- I know what the proverb is referring to, but I'm also referring to something else, if you know what I'm sayin....)

"A nod is as good as a wink to a blind donkey."
-What does this mean??

And, since it is almost April- a new spin on April showers bring May flowers......
"A soft dropping April brings milk to cows and sheep."

--Most of these were found at  There are a TON more, some that are very profound and a lot of really strange ones that take a bit of deciphering.
