‘Beannachtam na Feile Padraig!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Because I am of Irish descent, and love a good book, a good song, a good cry, and a pint of Guinness; I wish to share my favorite Irish authors, with quote, who have inspired me along the way…

Jonathan Swift: Books, the children of the brain.

Bram Stoker: We learn of great things by little experiences.

James Joyce: The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts.

Oscar Wilde: Wisdom comes with winters.

CS Lewis: No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally-and often far more-worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond.

And now I go look for my pint of Guinness!

Slainte!

  1. Thanks for the great little nuggets of Irish wit. Especially love that Oscar Wilde quote: Wisdom comes with winters. Hope he was right because after the winter we’ve just had, we’ll all be a lot wiser. Happy St Paddy’s Day!
