Proverbs from Russia

Growing up, what I learned about Russia came from the music of Russian composers that I played in my study of music and stories about Siberia. And the Tzar’s amazing FabergĂ© Easter eggs. Oh yes, and a few movies like “Dr. Zhivago.” 

These are few Russian proverbs.
  • Absentmindedness is searching for the horse you are riding
  • A fly cannot enter a closed mouth
  • Happiness is not a horse; you cannot harness it
  • If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either one
  • If you don't have time to do it right you must have time to do it over
  • Take your thoughts to bed with you, for the morning is wiser than the evening
