Do·tét torcc mór do orcann…
Do·tét torcc mór do orcann is do áibill fhásas breo.
(comes * boar * big * from * piglet * and * from * spark * grows * flame)
A great boar comes from a piglet and and from a spark a flame grows.
This saying is found in the Leabhar Breac in “The Shorter Version of the Tripartite Life” (28a19). I’ve normalized the spelling “dotoet” to “do·tét”.
