Rex Barker here with

This week we focus on Korean Proverbs. Thanks to Kim Lin from Pusan, Korea...

Even children of the same mother look different.

Man's affairs are evaluated only after his coffin is closed.

Carve the peg by looking at the hole.

You will hate a beautiful song if you sing it often.

Words have no wings but they can fly a thousand miles.

The bad plowman quarrels with his ox.

Even a sheet of paper seems lighter when two people lift it together

A turtle travels only when it sticks its neck out.

Where there are no tigers, a wildcat is very self-important.

Put off for one day and ten days will pass.

A kitchen knife cannot carve its own handle.

Even a fish wouldn't get into trouble if it kept its mouth shut.

Power lasts ten years; influence not more than a hundred.

Cast no dirt into the well that gives you water.

Even if the sky falls on you, there is a hole that you can escape from.

Wishing you all a very meaningful and relaxing weekend.

Very meaningful. The Oriental sayings usually are. I haven't heard these though, so thanks, I shall file them for the future.
I have tagged you on my blog, so go see today's post.

Love Granny

"Put off for one day and ten days will pass" is certainly true for me!

13 is my oldest's favorite lucky number! I guess some think it's unlucky and some think it's lucky!
I actually don't think it's either!
