Toasts to Good Fortune
May Dame Fortune ever smile on you, but never her daughter, Miss Fortune.
May the best of happiness, honor, and fortune keep with you.
Here's to a full belly, a heavy purse, and a light heart.
"Lack nothing: be merry." -Shakespeare, Henry IV
"Heaven give you many, many merry days!" -Shakespeare, The Merry Wives of Windsor
May the rocks in your field turn to gold.
I give you play days, heydays, and pay days!
May your luck be like the capital of Ireland--- Always Dublin
Here's to blue skies and green lights.
May your luck ever spread, Like jelly on bread.
To paraphrase a toast once popular among the cowboys,
"Here's to luck, and hoping God will take a likin' to us.”
A toast to the three great American birds:
May you always have an eagle in your pocket,
A chicken on your table,
And Wild Turkey in your glass.
Here's to good luck till we are tired of it.
May your joys be as deep as the ocean, and your misfortunes as light as its foam.
May the tide of fortune float us into the harbor of content.
May bad fortune follow you all your days . . . and never catch up with you.
May we all have the unspeakable good fortune to win a true heart, and the merit to keep it.
May you be as lucky as a mosquito in a nudist colony.
"A flock of blessings light upon thy back." -Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
Two ins and one out-in health, in wealth, and out of debt.
May the sunshine of comfort dispel the clouds of despair
May the saints protect you, And sorrow neglect you, And bad luck to the one That doesn't respect you.
May your well never run dry.
May your fire be as warm as the weather is cold.
May we never do worse
May the clouds in your life be only a background for a lovely sunset
May the most you wish for be the least you get.
Here's to turkey when you're hungry,
Champagne when you're dry,
A pretty woman when you need her,
And heaven when you die
In the words of Star Trek's Mr. Spook, "Live long and prosper."
I wish you all the best. As Shakespeare said in Timon of Athens, may "the best of happiness, honor and fortunes keep with you
A health to our sweethearts, our friends and our wives,
And may fortune smile on them the rest of their lives.
