Food For Thought: The Triads of Ireland from the 9th Century

Trio
Three rude ones of the world: a youngster mocking an old man, a robust person mocking an invalid, a wise man mocking a fool.

Three ruins of a tribe: a lying chief, a false judge, a lustful priest.

Three signs of ill breeding: a long visit, staring, constant questioning.

Three signs of a bad man: bitterness, hatred, cowardice.

Three candles which illumine every darkness: truth, nature, knowledge.
