         if no birds sang there except
         those that sang best.

Golden Oldie

          May those that love us, love us;
             and those that don't love us, May God turn their hearts;

                and if He doesn't turn their hearts, may He turn their
                   ankles so we'll know them by their limping.

                                          -Old Irish Toast
