Proverbs from Ethiopia
Greetings from Addis Ababa! In honor of writing you all from one of my favorite countries, I thought I’d make today’s Mindfulness Mondays post Ethiopia-centric! Below are some of my fav loosely-food-connected Ethiopian proverbs (as well as a few photos!). I’ll be back in a couple of days with our next Como Water video! Enjoy :D.
Coffee and love taste best when hot.
Cactus is bitter only to him who tastes it.
Only the man who is not hungry says the coconut has a hard shell.
A fool is thirsty in the midst of water.
A man who is too modest goes hungry.
Coffee is our bread.
Confiding a secret to an unworthy person is like carrying grain in a bag with a hole in it.
Eat when the meal is ready, speak when the time is ripe.
Even over cold pudding, the coward says: “It will burn my mouth.”
Fifty lemons are a load for one person, but for fifty persons they are perfume.
Pride is no substitute for a dinner.
The best of mankind is a farmer; the best food is fruit.
