May the road rise up to meet you: You may recognize this popular blessing (in Irish Gaelic: Go n-éirí an bóthar leat) from Catholic weddings or cross-stitched pillows in Nan's house. One of the main characteristics of Celtic Christianity is the use of images of nature to show how God interacts with people. "May the road rise up to meet you/ May the wind be always at your back/ May the sun shine warm upon you face ..." uses everyday images to mean, may God remove obstacles in your journey through life.

Always remember that hindsight is the best insight to foresight.

The treachery returns to the betrayer.

"There is only one thing worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about." - Oscar Wilde

May there be a fox on your fishing hook And a hare on your bait And may you kill no fish Until St. Brigid's Day.

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.

Forgetting a debt doesn’t mean it’s paid.

Best while you have it use your breath There is no drinking after death.
