Is descaid seirce sírshilliud.

(is * sign * of love * constant-gazing)

Long staring is a sign of love.

From "Tochmarc Étaíne", where Ailill Anguba has taken to gazing helplessly at Étaín, so smitten is he. The three-word maxims of "Bríathra Flainn Fhína maic Ossu" contains this version: "Descad serce sírshilliud."
