  1. Go seldom to your friends house and you will get welcome.
    There are no friends like the old friends. When you find them kind and true, never change them for the new.
    An té atá súas, oltar deoc air, agus an té atá síos buailtear cos air.
    Every dog is stiff at his own door.
    If you are poor be sure no freedom make,
    For you are a fool though wise and pure you speak
    But if you are rich and descended from a race of clowns
    your actions will be great, and your words of high renownd.
