Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise.
      - [Circumstance]

There's luck in odd numbers.
      - [Proverbs]

A baby was sleeping,
  Its mother was weeping.
      - Angel's Whisper [Babyhood]

Her beads while she numbered,
  The baby still slumbered,
    And smile in her face, as she bended her knee;
      Oh! bless'd be that warning,
        My child, thy sleep adorning,
          For I know that the angels are whispering with thee.
      - Angel's Whisper [Babyhood]

Live and think.
      - Father Roach [Life]

Andy Rooney was a fellow who had the most singularly ingenious knack of doing everything the wrong way; disappointment waited on all affairs in which he bore a part, and destruction was at his fingers' ends; so the nickname the neighbours stuck upon him was Handy Andy, and the jeering jingle pleased them.
      - Handy Andy [Books (First Lines)]

There was a place in childhood that I remember well,
  And there a voice of sweetest tone bright fairy tales did tell.
      - My Mother Dear [Motherhood]

For a ballad's a thing you expect to find lies in.
      - Paddy Blake's Echo [Ballads]

For dhrames always go by conthraries, my dear.
      - Rory O'More [Dreams]

Reproof on her lip, but a smile in her eye.
      - Rory O'More [Smiles]

"Then here goes another," says he, "to make sure,
  For there's luck in odd numbers," says Rory O'More.
      - Rory O'More [Luck]

In a retired district of the South of Ireland, near some wild hills and a romantic river, a small by-road led to a quiet spot, where, at the end of a little land, or boreen, which was sheltered by some hazel-hedges, stood a cottage which in England would have been considered a poor habitation, but in Ireland was absolutely comfortable, when contrasted with the wretched hovels that most of her peasantry are doomed to dwell in.
      - Rory O'More (ch. 1) [Books (First Lines)]

I'll seek a four-leaved shamrock in all thy fairy dells,
  And if I find the charmed leaves, oh, how I'll weave my spells!
      - The Four-Leaved Shamrock [Shamrocks]

Where's the snow
  That fell the year that's fled--where's the snow?
      - The Snow [Snow]

Come live in my heart and pay no rent.
      - Vourneen! when your days were bright
        [Wooing]

Sure the shovel and tongs
  To each other belongs.
      - Widow Machree [Matrimony]
