The Irish, those who hail the country of Ireland, both by birth and those who simply claim it, are
a God-fearing and unique group of people. It is said that everybody has been an Irish Catholic at
least once in their lives. Who wont join in the festivities of St. Patricks Day celebrations?
Attributed to the Irish are hundreds of thousands of quotes over the centuries, and here are a few
of their best. Enjoy, and feel free to use for yourself as often as you like.

1. "There is no language like the Irish for soothing and quieting."~~ By John Millington
Synge~~

2. "St. Patrick's Day is an enchanted time -- a day to begin transforming winter's dreams into
summer's magic."~~ By Adrienne Cook.~~

3. "Ireland is rich in literature that understands a soul's yearnings, and dancing that understands a
happy heart."~~ By Margaret Jackson.~~

4. "Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine,

Many of the quotes that are attributed to Ireland are those that are full of dealing with strife and
problems. For many individuals in Irelands history, their lives were anything but easy. They
struggled to find food, homes and shelter many times. And, when they had that there was disease
ravishing them. For those in Ireland, many quotes are very religious in nature as well. The goal
of each is to inspire or just to learn to deal with the things that were put at their feet.
