Irish Proverbs

A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures in the doctor's book

A hint is sufficient for the wise

A short visit is best and that not too often

A woman can beat the devil

Better the coldness of a friend than the sweetness of an enemy.

Beware of the anger of a patient man

Choose your company before you go drinking

Don't tell secrets to the children of your relatives.

He who can follow his own will is a king

He who has a good neighbor has a good friend

If you don't know the way, walk slowly

It is better to be born lucky than rich

Luck and laziness go hand in hand

Marriages are all happy. It's having breakfast together that causes all the trouble

Never buy through your ears but through your eyes

Reputations last longer than lives

The eye should be blind in the home of another

The road to hell is paved with good intentions

There is nothing sharper than a woman's tongue

Women are stronger than men, they do not die of wisdom
