      Top of the morning to ya!

      They say there are only two kinds of people in the world: the Irish, and those who wish they were. But, whatever our heritage, we all get to experience a little Emerald Isle magic on March 17th every year when we put on our greenest clothing to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (although sadly, not a day off from work, like they do in Ireland; is this why they think everyone wants to be Irish?). With a day full of traditions like hunting for four-leaf clovers, cooking Irish recipes, and watchingIrish movies, you may want to share some of these St. Patrick’s Day quotes too. May they allow you to reflect on the luck you’ve already had and think about making some more. For all other days in the year, these good luck quotes, uplifting quotes, and funny quotes should do the trick. Cheers! Or as they say in Ireland, sláinte! (Pronounced “slahn-chuh”).
