These things I warmly wish to you, Someone to love Some work to do A bit of sun, a bit of cheer And a guardian angel always near.
May you enjoy the four greatest blessings: Honest work to occupy you. A hearty appetite to sustain you. A good woman to love you. And a wink from the God above.
A good beginning is half the work
Making the beginning is one third of the work
Many hands make light work
The person of the greatest talk is the person of the least work
