Gaelic Sayings

Gems of wit and wisdom from the old Gaelic tongue:

The fool may pass for wise if he holds his tongue.

Say but little and say it well.

It is no secret when three know it.

If you cannot bite, do not show your teeth.

The slow horse will reach the mill,
But the one that breaks its bones will not.

An old Gaelic proverb:
The Irishman's wit is on the tip of his tongue; the Gael is wise after the event.

Another Gaelic proverb:
One can protect himself from a thief, but not from a liar.

An old Gaelic witticism:
Everyone can rule a shrew
Except the one he's married to.
