Triads

Thanks to aranya_mx for the link:

Celtic Triads



  • Three things by nature cause their possessor to err: youth, prosperity, and ignorance.


  • Three errors not acknowledged: fear of an enemy, torment of love, and a jealous persons' evil suspicion of their mate.


  • Three false sisters: "perhaps", "maybe", and "I dare say".


  • Three things by which excellence is established: Taking all things in moderation with nothing in excess; abidance to oaths; and acceptance of responsibility.


  • Three things which strengthen a person to stand against the whole world: Seeing the quality and beauty of truth; seeing beneath the cloak of falsehood; and seeing to what ends truth and falsehood come.


  • Three ways to know a person: by their discourse, their conduct, and their companions.


  • There are three things without which one is not whole: a mate, a home, and a craft.


  • Three things which make one glad: their mate loving them, their labor prospering, and their conscience easy.


  • Three things which come on a person without their knowing: sleep, error, and old age.


  • There are three things which strengthen the mind and reason: seeing much, reflecting much, and enduring much.


  • Three things of which everything is capable, and without which nothing can be: strength of body and mind, knowledge, and love of intuitive wisdom.



Some of them are really good, imho.
