May the road rise up to meet you.

And until we meet again, 

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

May those who love us, love us.

For those who don’t love us, May God turn their hearts.

And if God can’t turn their hearts, May he turn their ankles so we’ll know them by their limping!

An old Irish proverb
