A Country Can be Judged by the Quality of its Proverbs? Let’s Judge!

A proverb is a short popular saying of unknown origin that expresses a commonplace truth or belief. ┬áCan you guess which country birthed this telling proverb above? No idea? I could not read that little adage without looking up some of that country’s other sayings. ┬áHere’s a few more from that same country:

  • Anger without power is follyWorld Map
  • The silent dog is the first to bite.
  • A little too late, is much too late.
  • When I rest, I rust.
  • In America half an hour is forty minutes. Ouch!
  • An ass in Germany is a professor in Rome. Double ouch!

Mein Gott! The answer is Germany! Which country should I focus on next?
