The wind it blows, the ship it goes,
Though where and whither no one knows.

Shannon thanx for sharring. And oh my God here in Holland we have also a whole lot of them. I can tell them here but I will have to translate them to, and then the meaning maybe will be a bit different, but I will try:

1. Dutch : Het leven is een feest maar je moet zelf de slingers ophangen.
"Live is a party but you have to decorate it yourself "

2. Dutch : Geld hebben we niet maar wel een berg spullen
"We haven't got any money but loads of junk/stuff "

3. Dutch: Beter een snee in je neus dan een neus in je snee
"It's better to be drunk than having a carve in you pu..y "
Well this is a hard one but a "snee" has 2 meanings in Dutch, a "snee in je neus" is being druk. And your pu..y is also your "snee"

Last but not least I a friend of my used when he was very drunk. When he was going to bed he said: "when my bed is coming round 1more time, than I will jump in it"

Hope you al understand my qoutes, well at least I gave it a try :eek:

Here are some I found on the sachets of suger we use at work. Don't worry, some of them them don't make much sense to me either!!!

It's for it's own good that a cat purrs

Good men can often be found wearing worn britches ??

The day of the big wind is no time to be doing the thatching

He would put legs under a chicken (used for someone who is talkative)

The world can't make a racehorse out of a donkey

To the black crow it's offspring is bright

Beauty does not boil the pot

(I would love to know who comes up with these things!!!)

  • Bride: A woman with a fine prospect of happiness behind her.

  • I believe that sex is one of the most beautiful, natural, wholesome things that money can buy.

  • A husband is what is left of the lover after the nerve is extracted.

  • Whenever I date a guy, I think, is the man that I want my children to spend their weekends with?

  • Trust your husband, adore your husband, and get as much as you can in your own name.

  • Can you imagine a world without men? No crime and lots of happy, fat women.

  • Love is grand; divorce is a hundred grand.

:cool:

"So be sure when you step
Step with care and great tact
And remember that life's a great balancing act,
And you will succeed
Yes you will indeed,

Kid you'll move mountains!"

Aw that's a great lil quote!!!!!

I adore quotes...

  • It only takes a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone and a day to love someone. But it takes a lifetime to forget someone

  • From the outside looking in, they'll never understand, and from the inside looking out, we'll never be able to explain.

  • The sturdiest tree is not found in the shelter of the forest, but high upon some rocky crag, where it's daily battle with the elements shapes it into a thing of beauty.

  • It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich according to what he is, not according to what he has.

  • Always remember: There are two sides to every broken window.

  • Seek and you shall find, But believe and you shall become"

  • evertime god closes a door he opens a window...that's just so you'll have something to jump out of

  • Love is not blind -- it simply enables one to see things others fail to see.

  • A Friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway!

  • The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, not say a word and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

  • A lie gets half way around the world before the truth has a change to get it's pant's on.

  • Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would life, for without them, life is meaningless.

  • At the touch of love, everything becomes a poem.

  • Love rather than hate,
    Smile rather than frown,
    Build rather than destroy,
    Perservere rather than quit,
    Praise rather than gossip,
    Heal rather than wound,
    Give rather than grasp,
    Act rather than Delay,
    Forgive rather than curse,
    Pray rather than despair.

Thats mad...i do that too, i have a really old blue journal that ive been writing quotes in for years :eek:

Always look at people from within, not from without, a person should be judged on the quantity of their heart, not on the quantity of things they own. After all, he who dies with the most toys, still dies!!!

I don't know any quotes so to speak... But a few proverbs which are sometimes fun to read;

    When someone shows unnecessary amount of suspicion for an action.

  • Havlayan kopek isirmaz.

    When a person talks too much, it usually does not lead to action.

  • Gozden irak, gonulden de irak olur
    (If one is far away, one also gets far away from the heart.)
    Expresses the feeling that by being far away, one risks losing the love and affection of a person.
