That one suffers from a double-dose of original sin: The Bible proposes that when Adam ate the forbidden fruit, he cast a state of sin on all of mankind.

The day will come when the cow will have use for her tail.

May you always have a cool head and a warm heart.

May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings, slow to make enemies and quick to make friends. And may you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.

May you look back fifty years from now and agree that today was the worst day of your married life.

What is but age? Something to count? Some people fight it as if climbing the mount. I choose life with dignity and grace And offer a drink to all in this place!

Health and a long life to you. 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.

The race of men named the Gael, Is a race God surely made mad. For all of their wars are merry And all of their loves are sad.

May there be spring enough in your life to outlast the winters; May there be guitars (and drums) enough to lift your spirits whenever you need it; May you be gentle enough to comfort those who are hurting, But revolutionary enough to bring heaven to those who need it now. May there always be a leprechaun near you to bring out laughter and dance and the child in you. And may God always have room enough for you in the palm of his hand! – Donated by Gregory Hicks
