But It Sounds Much Better In Italian... (Part 1)

"The early bird gets the worm". "You can't teach an old dog new tricks". Growing up, we hear these sayings to help us understand the life around us. It's a way of passing down wisdom in a cute package of words that stays with us.

From time to time, we are going to be posting Italian proverbs with their transaltions. Some will be profound, some will be funny and a few might be naughty.
As you read these, please understand that many of these saying are in their dialect so the spelling may not seem correct and the grammar and vocabulary may also seem off but the English translation should help. Enjoy these as you may not have heard them in a while, and some are probably in your family lexicon. If you have a saying that we have not posted yet, please comment on the post so we can add to our melting pot of Italian wisdom. To get everyone warmed up, I have linked this video with basic sayings. Just to get the wisdom juices flowing. Enjoy!
