While a lot of jokes have been darted at them, their culture has also given birth to some of the world's most intelligent and truthful proverbs. Here is a set of wise and funny Irish quotes. They bring out the frankness that is the essence of the Irish folk. 9 Witty Irish Proverbs Better be quarreling than lonesome.You never miss the water till the well has run dry.The Irish ignore anything they can't drink or punch.Don't talk about a rope in the house of someone whose father was hung.Praise the ripe field not the green corn.A hair on the head is worth two on the brush.Nodding the head does not row the boat.Everyone is wise until he speaks.A son is a son till he takes him a wife, a daughter is a daughter all of her life.
