The three fortunes

The three fortunes of the cat: the housewife’s forgetfulness, walking without a sound and keen sight in darkness.

 

The three fortunes of the lucky man: fences, vigilance and early rising.

 

Three fortunes of the unlucky man: long visits to his neighbours, long morning sleep and bad fences.

 

From Irish Proverbs and Sayings collected by Seamus Cashman and Sean Gaffney, The O’Brien Press, Dublin
