Twenty years a child; twenty years running wild; twenty years a mature man, and after that, praying.

The best way to keep loyalty in a man's heart is to keep money in his purse.

Wherever you go and whatever you do, May the luck of the Irish be there with you.

May you die in bed at 95, shot by a jealous spouse.

May misfortune follow you the rest of your life, but never catch up.

What butter and whiskey will not cure there's no cure for.

To warm words on a cold day.

The man with the boots does not mind where he places his foot.

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.
