Proverbs from around the world

Don't you love proverbs? I do. I see proverbs as life guidance. It's like a manual book for life. When in doubt, search for the right proverbs..that's what I always have in mind. What I like more about proverb is that it's not like those long quotes or saying (although I also love long quotes and sayings). The thing about the proverb that it can say simple things but at the same time it enables those who read it to get the main point of what it wants to say. Here are some proverbs from around the world..see if you can catch the meaning behind the simple sentence...

  • A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. Arab Proverb
  • A bird in the hand is worth two in a bush. English Proverb
  • A broken hand works, but not a broken heart. Persian Proverb
  • A cat has nine lives. Proverb of Unknown Origin
  • A closed mouth catches no flies. Italian Proverb
  • A country can be judged by the quality of its proverbs. German Proverb
  • A courtyard common to all will be swept by none. Proverb, Chinese
  • A dog is wiser than a woman; it does not bark at its master. Russian Proverb
  • A drink precedes a story. Irish Proverb
  • A drowning man is not troubled by rain. Persian Proverb
  • A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees. William Blake Proverbs of Hell (1790)
  • A forest is in an acorn. Proverb of Unknown Origin
  • A friend in need is a friend indeed English Proverb
  • A friend's eye is a good mirror. Irish Proverb
