Make the luck of the Irish by creating it yourself.
The future is not set, there is no fate but what we make for ourselves.
God's help is nearer than the door.
Mothers hold their children's hands for just a little while...
And their hearts forever.
Your feet will bring you where your heart is.
Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But never forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.
Now sweetly lies old Ireland
Emerald green beyond the foam,
Awakening sweet memories,
Calling the heart back home.
If you lie down with dogs you'll rise with fleas.
Marry a mountain girl
and you marry the whole mountain.
As you ramble through life, whatever be your goal;
Keep your eye upon the doughnut, and not upon the hole.
Do not resent growing old. Many are denied the privilege.
God is good, but never dance in a small boat.
Life is like a cup of tea,
it's all in how you make it
Thrift is not an affair of the pocket, but an affair of character.
I believe that thrift is essential to well-ordered living.
Thrift comes too late when you find it at the bottom of your purse.
Frugality may be termed the daughter of Prudence, the sister of Temperance, and the parent of Liberty.
Thrift means that you should always have the best you can possibly afford, when the thing has any reference to your physical and mental health, to your growth in efficiency and power.
Thrift was never more necessary in the world's history than it is today.
We owe something to extravagance, for thrift and adventure seldom go hand in hand.
You cannot bring about prosperity without discouraging thrift.
We are not to judge thrift solely by the test of saving or spending. If one spends what he should prudently save, that certainly is to be deplored. But if one saves what he should prudently spend, that is not necessarily to be commended. A wise balance between the two is the desired end.
Industry, thrift and self-control are not sought because they create wealth, but because they create character.
Frugality is misery in disguise.
Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship.
