May your home always be too small to hold all your friends.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I went in search of Irish quotes and proverbs.
This one in particular struck at the heart of what I believe to be one of the most endearing of the Irish idiosyncrasies, hospitality.
The Irish are well known for their hospitality and welcoming nature.
I have come to think this is part of what leads to their general cheeriness. Life is best lived through service and hospitality towards others.
When we put others first our best shines through.
Make it a great day filled with happy hospitality.
Here are some of the other great Irish sayings I found:
It’s easier to halve the potato when there’s love.
May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks. May your heart be as light as a song. May each day bring you bright, happy hours that stay with you all the year long.
Lose an hour in the morning and you’ll be looking for it all day.
If you buy what you don’t need you might have to sell what you do.
Better good manners than good looks.
You’ll never plough a field by turning it over in your mind.
Pity him who makes an opinion a certainty.
