Ancient Proverbs – Time to Smile!

French: A brain is worth little without a tongue.
   Long on hair, short on brains.
   If your brain is made of butter, do not be a baker

English: Shut the gate before the horse has bolted—not after.
   If the brain sows not corn, it will plant thistles.
   Money spent on the brain is never spent in vain.

Albania:  Mind the goats so that you will drink their milk.

German:  You don’t see the brain on one’s forehead.

Arabic:  Arrogance over the arrogant is modesty.

Corsica:  An idle person is up to no good.
