Tangle Tuesday – 3/7/23☘

In an effort to hopefully motivate myself to do more creative pursuits, I am going to post one of my zentangle creations every Tuesday. I have been spending far too much time playing silly games on my tablet and too little time being creative and productive. Here’s hoping this helps to hold me a little more accountable 😉

I love proverbs from every country, but thought since St. Patrick’s Day will be here soon, I thought I would choose an Irish proverb for this week’s zentangle. 🙂

Just for fun, here are some proverbs from other countries/cultures:

  • The poor carpenter blames his tools. – English Proverb
  • The chameleon changes color to match the earth. The earth doesn’t change colors to match the chameleon. – African Proverb
  • Dig the well before you are thirsty. – Asian Proverb
  • It is better to be by yourself than poorly accompanied. – Latin American Proverb
  • What is learned in youth is carved in stone.- Arabic Proverb
  • The man who appreciates what he has is the richest man of all.- Jewish Proverb
  • Don’t bring your rules to another person’s monastery.- Russian Proverb
  • If you wonder often, the gift of understanding will come. – Arapaho Proverb
  • If you speak too much, you will learn too little. – Armenian Proverb
  • Call on God, but row away from the rocks. – Indian Proverb
  • If you can’t live longer, live deeper. – Italian Proverb
  • A few kind words can warm three winter months. – Japanese Proverb
  • Do not judge a person ‘til you have walked two moons in his moccasins. – Cheyenne Proverb
  • Evil enters like a needle and spreads like an oak tree. – Ethiopian Proverb
  • Good advice is often annoying, bad advice never is. – French Proverb
  • If you wish to be valued, make yourself scarce. – German Proverb

I hope you found these as enjoyable as I have. Do you know a good one I haven’t shared here? Please share!
