- Better be quarrelling than lonesome.
- You never miss the water till the well has run dry.
- The Irish ignore anything they can’t drink or punch.
- Don’t talk about a rope in the house of someone whose father was hung.
- Praise the ripe field not the green corn.
- A hair on the head is worth two on the brush.
- Nodding the head does not row the boat.
- Everyone is wise until he speaks.
- A son is a son till he takes him a wife, a daughter is a daughter all of her life.
