St. Patrick was a gentleman | Who through strategy and stealth | Drove snakes from Ireland | Here’s a toasting to his health | But not too many toastings | Lest you lose yourself and then | Forget the good St. Patrick | And see all those snakes again.
Bhí Naomh Pádraig duine uasal Cé trí straitéis agus stealth Nathracha Thiomáin ó Éirinn Seo toasting dá shláinte Ach ní toastings iomarca Lest chailleann tú féin agus ansin Déan dearmad ar an maith Naomh Pádraig Agus féach dóibh siúd go léir snakes arís
The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.
― Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq’ij of the Eagle Clan
A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Being soaked alone is cold. Being soaked with your best friend is an adventure.

“…vicinity to the sea is desirable, because it is easier to do nothing by the sea than anywhere else, and because bathing and basking on the shore cannot be considered an employment but only an apotheosis of loafing.”
― E.F. Benson
