Leprechauns, four-leaf clovers, U2, James Joyce, Daniel Day Lewis, Guinness Stout, Van Morrison, Irish Stew. There are so many things to love about the <a href="/quotes/author/Irish/Proverb">Irish</a> - how many countries can boast that we honor them with such revelry? Oh sure, it's thinly veiled as a patronage to St. Patrick, but really, it's about being Irish. Who would wear a little pin on their lapel that says, &quot;Kiss me, I'm Swedish&quot;? It's just not the same.<br><br> The parades, the shamrocks, the soda bread... I could go on, but that's because I'm part Irish and my mother is completely obsessed with the holiday. She's not alone. Millions will don green attire and head for the nearest pub that even remotely bears an Irish name to hoist a mug or two of ale. At 10:00 a.m. in Chicago, the river will turn a unique shade of green in preparation for their annual celebratory parade. Our family will dine on food that is almost entirely green and perhaps watch Feet of Flames, starring our favorite ageless dancer, Michael Flatley. <br><br> But wait! How can you hoist a mug of ale without a hearty Irish quote or two? This is no time to conjure something off the cuff... only true <a href="/quotes/author/Irish/Sayings">Irish quotes</a> will do. Try <a href="/quote/782771">this one:</a> <em>&quot;Wherever you go and whatever you do, May the luck of the Irish be there with you&quot;.</em> That's pretty short and sweet and easy to remember, even if you've been in the pub for a bit. <br><br> Yes, the Irish have a reputation for drinking. We catch some insight into this phenomenon with the Tina Fey <a href="/quote/41950">Irish quote</a>, <em>&quot;Scientists report that drinking beer can be good for the liver... did I say 'scientists?'</em> I meant 'Irish people. Okay, more a <a href="/jokes">joke</a> than an <a href="/quotes/author/Irish/Sayings">Irish quote</a>, but funny. As author <a href="/quotes/author/Alex/Levine">Alex Levine</a> explains, <em>&quot;Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar and fat.&quot;</em> There is definitely evidence of overindulgence in my own extended family, and true to the Irish heritage, nobody really apologizes for it. It is generally accepted that although the Irish have many unenviable traits, we accept them, warts and all. Even singer/songwriter <a href="/quotes/author/Judy/Collins">Judy Collins</a>, not normally known for Irish quotes, but who evidently has a bit of Celtic lineage, offers this explanation: <em>&quot;Irish Alzheimer's: you forget everything except the grudges.&quot;</em> <br><br> Oh yes, the quotes. Between the Guinness and the Harps I forgot. Here's a great <a href="/quote/299937">Irish quote</a> for the occasion: <em>&quot;But the greatest love - the love above all loves, even greater than that of a mother - Is the tender, passionate, undying love, of one drunken slob for another.&quot;</em> Oh wow, not the drinking thing again? Somewhere there must be a respectable example of an Irish quote that doesn't have to do a malted beverage. Let's try the popular: <em>&quot;May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.&quot; </em>That's a safer sentiment, something we can all aspire to. Just not too soon.<br><br> What seems a bit confusing about an <a href="/quote/1154305">Irish quote</a> such as: <em>&quot;Count your joys instead of your woes; Count your friends instead of your foes&quot;</em> is that just because it rhymes in English doesn't mean it will rhyme in Gaelic. If he were still alive, we could ask Nobel winner and famous Irish author <a href="/quotes/author/George+Bernard/Shaw">George Bernard Shaw</a> about the translation issue. Except George admits,<em> &quot;I showed my appreciation of my native land in the usual Irish way: by getting out of it as soon as I possibly could.&quot; </em>
