    Post by [A]dmin on Wed Apr 16, 2008 9:58 am


    A "proverb" is a short, traditional saying in general use. It
    usually expresses some obvious truth or familiar experience.
    Here are some proverbs that are well known in English, though
    some of them come from other languages. The meanings given are
    generally accepted meanings, though other interpretations may be
    possible. :idea:

    1. "Don't cross your bridges before you come to them."
    Don't worry about problems before they arrive.

    2. "Soon learnt, soon forgotten."
    Something that is easy to learn is easy to forget.

    3. "Even a worm will turn."
    Everybody will revolt if driven too far.
    * worm (noun) = small thin animal with soft body and no legs
    * turn (verb) = revolt, fight back

    4. "It was the last straw that broke the camel's back."
    There is a limit to everything.
    * straw (noun) = dried stalk of grain (like grass)
    * camel (noun) = large long-necked animal in the desert

    5. "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach."
    Many women have won a man's love by cooking good meals.
    * way (noun) = path; route

    6. "Where there's a will there's a way."
    If we are determined to do something, we can do it.
    * will (noun) = strong determination, desire.
    * way (noun) = path, method

    7. "The best advice is found on the pillow."
    We may find the answer to a problem after sleeping.
