Kazakh Proverbs and Sayings Part II

Dec 12, 2007, 2:53 PM |

A crow eats whatever it gets. 

A giver thinks five is too much, a receiver thinks six is not enough. 

Even gold is not of value, if one has a lot of it. 

The way one looks at you reveals if one is an enemy, the way one feeds you shows if one is a miser. 

As long as your eyes are hungry, your stomach is empty. 

The takers hand should learn to give. 

No one born can escape death. 

One cannot return the past, one cannot revive the dead. 

Crying will not resurrect the dead.
