Happy St. Pat's Day! To commemorate this occasion, I've decided to share some of my favorite quotes about the Irish:

-"I'm so glad I'm fuckin' Irish" -Colin Farrell

-"In order to find his equal, an Irishman is forced to talk to God." -Stephen Braveheart

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

-"Give an Irishman lager for a month, and he's a dead man. An Irishman is lined with copper, and the beer corrodes it. But whiskey polishes the copper and is the saving of him." -Mark Twain

-"God invented whiskey so the Irish wouldn't rule the world." -Anonymous

-"Maybe it's bred in the bone, but the sound of pipes is a little bit of heaven to some of us." -Nancy O'Keeefe

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

-"The curse of the Irish is not that they don't know the words to a song -- it's that they know them all." -Susan Dooley

-"This [the Irish] is one race of people for whom psychoanalysis is of no use whatsoever." -Sigmund Freud
