Irish Proverbs

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

Be neither intimate nor distant with the clergy.

When the apple is ripe it will fall.

Nature breaks through the eyes of the cat.

There is hope from the sea, but none from the grave.

A silent mouth is melodious.

Marry a mountain girl and you marry the whole mountain.

Praise the ripe field not the green corn.

Nodding the head does not row the boat.

Fear is a fine spur, so is rage.

There is no fool who has not his own kind of sense.

Better one good thing that is than two good things that were.

He who can follow his own will is a king.

Everyone is wise until he speaks.
