I wish you health, I wish you well, and happiness galore. I wish you luck for you and friends; what could I wish you more? May your joys be as deep as the oceans, your troubles as light as its foam. And may you find, sweet peace of mind, where ever you may roam.

May all your joys be pure joys, and all your pain champagne.

Who keeps his tongue keeps his friends.
