Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs from around the World

Proverbs are words of wisdom passed down from generation to generation. I really like the succinct way they discuss problems all of us encounter in our life, or warn about the consequences of our behaviour. The authors are anonymous, so gain no credit for their words, which makes me respect them all the more.

Proverbs are better when you take a little bit of them, at a time, like a fine liqueur.

Two Imageexcellent Danish proverbs here:

Bad is never good until worse happens.
Danish Proverb

The dog’s kennel is not the place to keep a sausage.
Danish Proverb

but this from Italy:

Below the navel there is neither religion nor truth.!!!!!

What the Italians meant by that one, is something many have pondered about, no doubt.
