Proverbs from Mexico

As you know, The United Mexican States  share a rather very large Southern border with the United States of America (as does the Dominion of Canada on the Northern side). For years, as a child in Canada, I pictured the USA as the ‘sandwich filling.’ When I grew older and moved to the USA with my parents, I laughed at the size of the 'sandwich filling.' 

Here are a few proverbs from Mexico. 
  • A gilded cage is still a cage
  • All time spent angry is time lost being happy.
  • If you build a wall around your suffering it may devour you from the inside
  • Remember that every tic-toc tic-toc of the clock is a second of life that goes by and never repeats itself
  • Although a monkey may be dressed in silk—it’s still a monkey
  • Do good and don't worry to whom
