Food is a good workhorse.

When the drop is inside, the sense is outside.

Maybe it's bred in the bone, but the sound of pipes is a little bit of heaven to some of us.

May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door.

Here's to you, as good as you are. Here's to me as bad as I am. As good as you are and as bad as I am, I'm as good as you are, as bad as I am.

A word is more enduring than worldy wealth.

Walk straight, my son -- as the old crab said to the young crab.

On me tod: A lonely lad says, "I'm on me tod," if he's riding solo at the bars that night, or alone in general. Tod Sloan was an American jockey whose mother died when he was young, whose father abandoned him, and whose incredibly successful horse-racing career came to an end when he moved to the U.K. and was ridiculed for his Western riding style. Sloan was always said to be "on his own.". This expression is one of the best-known examples of Cockney rhyming slang, a phrase construction that involves taking a common word and using a rhyming phrase of two or three words to replace it. "On my Tod Sloan" rhymes with "on my own"; but in typical Cockney fashion, the word that completes the rhyme ("Sloan") is omitted.
