Proverb of the Day

Trí ní a bhaineann le sonas: fál, foscadh, is mochóirí.
Three things that make for happiness: hedges, shelter, and early rising.
Explanation: It's fairly obvious how shelter and early rising make for happiness. Well-kept hedges make for happiness because they keep cattle where they're supposed to be, not breaking in to the cabbage field, not straying onto the neighbour's land. Robert Frost wrote a poem about fixing his fences with his neighbour in the spring: "Good fences make good neighbours".
