little trinities

The Celtic People with their love of significant numbers have always given special significance to the Triad, and arrangement of three statements which summed up a person, a thing or a situation, often with a blend of light humour, deep meaning and paradox.

Three sisters of lying: perhaps, maybe, guess.

Three sources of new life: a women's belly, a hen's egg, a wrong forgiven.

(attributed to Thomas Merton)
