thank @BunnyPuncher here my entry for the contest, with a popular saying of my country Venezuela

"To put on the espadrilles that what is coming is joropo"

The joropo is the typical dance of the Venezuelan plains, where espadrilles (a type of footwear native to the country) are used. It is said when things "get ugly" and it is time to act.

Thank you so much. This is exactly what I was looking for. A saying I had not heard from another country. All from another Steemian. Great entry and best of luck.

Thank you again for allowing me to participate and I hope you continue promoting initiatives like these simple, fun and very enriching, blessings!

  1. "When in Rome, do as the Romans do".
  2. "Make learning fun".
  3. "Where there's smoke, there's fire".

Here are my entries;

  1. Your experience of life is completely your making.
  2. Time is not just money. Time is LIFE.

Thank you.

it needs two people to make love.

Thanks for this opportunity
Alright, i'd just go ahead and share my best african proverb as my entry for this contest:

Here's my entry :)

  • Measure ten times, and then cut off.

Десять разів відміряй, а раз відріж.

  • It happens that the cow is flying.

Буває, що й корова літає.

  • The large tree is slowly growing.

Велике дерево поволі росте.

Never bite the hand that feeds you.
If life gives you lemons..make lemonade
Don't throw the baby out with the bath water
Golden sayings in my family.

Do your karma, without expecting fruits from it.

All you can imagine is real.

My mum used to say this

Seek HIM first thy kingdom of God... And all things shall be added unto You.

First of all thank you for the opportunity! I have a few favorites here it goes

1- if there is no sunshine be the sunshine!

2-never forget to love yourself because through it you show others your value

3- (my all time favorite) "you are not the opinion of somebody who doesn't know you"

One does not test the depth of a river with both feet.

Personal Favorite

Britain is full of lovely useless sayings. One of my faves is 'hard lines'. You say it when you're trying to sympathise with somebody else's bad luck, but couldn't really give a toss.

"dont mess with me"

I made this one for personal motivation.
Here it is.
"Life is a chance. Take it and keep your faith.
Chances are all just around the corner. "

Thanks to @bunnypuncher for the opportunity
My mum uses this saying the most, especially to call a derailing child back to order.

You don't stop a child from growing a long tooth so far he has big lips to cover it .

He who argues with a king will only be on his knees for long.

It's only a wise leper that doesn't get killed in a foretold war.
Hope you like my entry.

greetings @bunnypuncher, we are from Venezuela and in this land is very common to speak with proverbs we could name you more than 60 original sayings here, but here goes our input with these 3 that we chose for you hehe I hope you like

"As it's coming, let's see"

"If you're not going to iron, do not wrinkle"

"Give more return than mom in the mouth of old"

The mamón is a Venezuelan wild fruit, round, small and not very fleshy that, to be able to eat it, it is necessary to put it in the mouth and to try to detach its meat with the teeth. For people who do not have teeth, it becomes very difficult to eat it.

Here is a 1 SBD tip for playing. Thank you very much. This great to learn sayings from other countries from new people.

I like this one. I'd have to make a separate list to answer that one.

Hellow @bunnpuncher!
Here is my entry for this contest.

No Man Is An Island

Hello here is my entry for the contest:

1:"The past is a puzzle, like a broken mirror. As you piece it together, you cut yourself, your image keeps shifting. And you change with it. It could destroy you, drive you mad. It could set you free. "

2:"Hope is what makes us strong. It is why we are here. It is what we fight with when all else is lost."

3:"Brick walls are there for a reason. They are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop people who don't want it badly enough."

Thanks for your entry. Here is a 1 SBD tip for playing.

If it's meant to be, It will be ❤️

I'm a newbie, thanks for the opportunity
Here are my entries:

  • when u beat a child with your right hand, you use your left hand to cuddle the child.
  • what an old man see while sitting down, a child may climb a mountain but cannot see it.
  • something don't just happen, there is a purpose for everything that happened.

Third entry Advice is a thing which is everyone giving very easily but when they have to take then they not accept easily.

Here is my saying for the day (and the contest) derived from endless hours of online gaming and working with adults who believe themselves infallible.

If only common sense were more common

This little saying can be applied to almost all situations, specially anything involving politicians, teenagers and similar individuals with high risk of making illogical statements and actions :)

No matter how long the knight, the dawn must surely break. Mind you that still water runs deep so mind your fellows as you try to kill to birds with a stone in order not to be brought to book as result of your itching finger.

I'm sending you 1 SBD tip for playing. Thanks

Thank you for this opportunity. I wrote this myself......

We have to keep fighting, because that is what we must do. Being the best we can be is the best we can do. Most times we fall we shouldn't be down but try and push on. Because whats important is that you realize your fault and willing to make a change. So ride on and make the devil ashame

Honestly ..this is so cool.

Yeah thanks

Life doesn't owe you anything, but you owe yourself to give it everything you've got.

"5 of 10 people who watch tv... are half of that group."

-Les Luthiers

The famous mantra that I live by: Que sera sera, Whatever will be, will be.

Whenever faced by frustrations, disappointments and failures, I always remind myself with this quote: Fall 7 times, Stand up 8 .. I should be resilient and get my ass working and continuing what I love to do despite unfortunate circumstances. That’s what having spirit is all about. :)

You never know a responsible man until you entrust him with a responsibility

No man is a failure in life. All that is required, is the RIGHT_MINDSET

I don't think i can fail, for when a man thinks he can fail, he has already failed

In the land of myth and a time of magic,
the destiny of a great kingdom lies on the shoulders of a young boy.
His name... MERLIN

Seeth thou a man diligent in his work, he shall stand before kings and not before mean men.

Everything is possible to him that believes.

Wisdom is profitable to direct.

'Do not do unto others what you don't want others do unto you.' 😊

Work on being and not on having because with who you are you will have.

It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.

Life isn't about winning, it's about living. Only when you have lived your life then you win in life.

Greetings friend! Good competition. I learned definitions that you did not know and understand things that are not understood. I leave you my participation.

1- "Don't make your life become a cliché"
2- "Go looking for an epithet, because you will soon be popular"
3- "The universe is infinite, though everything has a beginning and an end"

I hope to help you in your logo.

"Do not let life pass you by". Incubus (Warning)

Heeey! here is my entry:

1.- "Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal"
2.- "Everything in moderation, including moderation"
3.- “Life before Death. Strength before Weakness. Journey before Destination.”

Here's my entry :)

1-"What I was, isn’t what I am. And what I am, isn’t yet what I can be."

2-"The best game to play, he thought, is the game you don’t realize you are playing."

Hope you'll like it

"Reculer pour mieux sauter."

A French saying that literally means, take a step back so you can leap higher. It says that we should wait for the right moment for us to achieve our goals.

"Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime."

The origin of the saying is contested. But it means that helping people gain skills and knowledge is much better than material donations.

"Don't be afraid of the shadows, that only means there's a light nearby."

Do not settle for anything less. Believe in yourself and soar high. A dreamer should keep his head in the clouds and his feet on the ground.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.

Trust your self. You've survived a lot and you will survive whatever is coming.
