No, this isn't a Biblical thread... Share your favorite, most deepestest proverbs (sayings) here. Always interesting to read the really interesting ones, for depth is deep. "They buried us, but they didn't know we were seeds" - Mexican proverb. "Only an upset dog barks" or "A dog only barks when something's wrong", my German grandma told me this one (so, German), very very good. A classic, but nonetheless true and frequently applicable: "judge a tree by its fruit". "In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed are kings" I know it in French, maybe it exists in English, anyone knew this one ? Another French one: "Chassez le naturel il revient au galop", - "chase away the natural, it'll come back galloping" or another version is "oust the natural from out the door, it'll come back from the window". Many more, but I'll just finish this post off with this one, it's French but a few here should recognize it: "Honi soit qui mal y pense".
