A new broom sweeps clean, but an old brush knows the corners.”   —   Irish Proverb

(Even though the L had to be either the A or the I, it took me some time to get this one rolling.  This is one of those old sayings that you generally only hear part one.  The brush part was new to me.  Of course, I’m not Irish, but I’m often mistaken for having Irish heritage.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.”   —   Irish Proverb

(Word to the wise:  Never mention your sweetheart and your wife – as two separate entities – in a single sentence.  Believe me, you’ll live a much longer and happier life for heeding these words.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

You’ll never plow a field by turning it over in your mind.”   —   Irish Proverb

(I love the imagery of this proverb.  I guess this is the Irish version of: “Just Do It!”  You think too long on something, and before you know it the opportunity has passed, or you plumb just run out of time.  It seems that all the best, most meaningful, quotations enter my brain, poke around for a bit, and then high-tail it outta there!  There must be a whole lot of scary crap in this old noggin of mine.  It’d be nice if something like this would hang around long enough to take root.  Peace out and word to your mutha!)   —   YUR
