Irish Quotes

St. Patrick’s Day Quotes

Saint Patrick was a gentleman...Who through strategy and stealth...
Drove all the snakes from Ireland...Here's a drinkee to his health! 
But not too many drinkees...Lest we lose ourselves and then...
Forget the good Saint Patrick...And see them snakes again! 
- Unknown 

May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, 
and may trouble avoid you wherever you go. 
--Irish Blessing 

May the road rise to meet you, 
May the wind be always at your back, 
May the sun shine warm upon your face, 
The rains fall soft upon your fields and, 
Until we meet again 
--An Irish Blessing

Please Retweet – Famous Sayings Blog

Posted by quotes on March 5, 2009

Blog Visitor Contest

The Famous Sayings Blog is getting close to 5 million page views. I decided to give a prize to the person on twitter who comes closest to being here for the # 5,000,000 page view and who documents their participation by taking a screen shot and posting it on their blog with a link back here and then posting to twitter about their accomplishment.

https://sayings.wordpress.com/ is close to 5 million page views. Look on the left sidebar for the current count, take a screen shot, blog about it, and post a link to it on twitter. Tweet & blog post of screen shot closest to 5,000,000 wins a prize.

Don’t hesitate to get started because many people will probably not follow the rules above so the winner could be quite far off from the number 5 million on the page view counter.

Thank you

Bill Austin
