Things to think about

I am reading a book from a friend, Wisdom Tales from Around the World, by Heather Forest. And in it, are some fun proverbs. Here are a few I liked:
  • It is better to turn back than to get lost. (From Russia)
  • Talk does not cook rice. (China)
  • When the kettle boils over, it overflows its own sides. (Yiddish)
  • Mistrust is an ax at the tree of love. (Russia)
  • Not all that si black is charcoal. (Philippines)
  • He that goes barefoot must not plant thorns. (England)
  • A crooked branch has a crooked shadow. (Japan)
  • It is one thing to cackle and another to lay an egg. (Ecuador)
  • One dog barks because it sees something; a hundred dogs bark because they heard the first dog bark. (China)
