Focail Féilire

Go méadaí do charthanacht le do stór.

May your charity increase as much as your wealth.

Chuala mé comhrá, agus mé i mo sheasamh sa scuaine in Aldi le déanaí, comhrá a chuaigh rud éigin mar a leanas,  

Fear:      Big money to be won in the Lotto tonight.

Bean:    I wouldn’t want to win it. It’s too much money for one 
             person.

Fear:    Think of all you could do for charity.

Bean:    I do enough for charity already.

Níl a fhios agam céard is ‘enough’ ann, a léitheoirí, ach dá mbeadh do sháith airgid agat, agus dá mbuafá airgead sa bhreis, bheadh sé éasca go leor an t-airgead buaite sin a roinnt go carthanach, nach mbeadh?  

Athfhriotal eile, ar an ábhar céanna, le léamh ag bun an leathanaigh anseo,

In charity there is no excess.

Tuilleadh ón bhfear a dúirt é sin, Francis Bacon Sr., anseo.
