More Ancient Proverbs

Italian: Everyone thinks he has more than his share of brains.

Everyone gives himself credit for more brains than he has, and less money.
All the brains are not in one head.
Half a brain is enough for him who says little
The world is governed with little brains.
Some many heads, so many brains.

Norwegian: Ask for advice, and then use your brain.

American: We need brain more than belly food.
Brain is worth more than brawn.
Where there are no brains, there is no feeling.
The fewer the brains, the bigger the hat.
You can borrow brains, but you can’t borrow character.

Dutch: A handful of patience is worth a bushel of brains
