Some proverbs

July 20, 2006

If my grandmother had wheels she would be a bicycle
Do not speak unless you can improve on the quality of the silence
A man without a woman is like a fish without a bicycle
A man is not honest simply because he never had a chance to steal.
A spoon does not know the taste of soup, nor a learned fool the taste of wisdom
Do not blame God for having created the tiger, but thank him for not having given it wings
Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped
Experience is a comb which nature gives to men when they are bald.
He who asks is a fool for five minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever
In baiting a mousetrap with cheese, always leave room for the mouse
May your every wish be granted. (Ancient Chinese Curse)
More grows in the garden than the gardener knows he has sown.
The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials
The reverse side also has a reverse side
Where there is love there is pain
Speaking the truth is useful to the hearer, harmful to the speaker
If tha’ Knaws nowt, say nowt, an ‘appen nobody’ll notice
A hedge between keeps friendship green.
