A proverb a day to brighten the day

455a. Schöne Worte brechen keine Knochen.

455b. Fair words break no bones.

The secret of good relationship lies in the right choice of
the right words we use to
communicate with the others.

We are supposed to talk with good feelings and with good intentions.
Even unfavorable things can be conveyed favorably, with the right words.

The now popular word road-rage is the result of the wrong choice of words.
When two head-strong-people argue, road-rage becomes unavoidable.

footnotes:
Schöne = Fair
Worte = words
brechen =break
keine = no
Knochen = bones.

Road rage is aggressive or angry behavior exhibited by motorists. These behaviors include rude and verbal insults, physical threats or dangerous driving methods targeted toward another driver or non-drivers such as pedestrians or cyclists in an effort to intimidate or release frustration.

A proverb a day to brighten the day.

460a. Geschenke von Feinden sind gefährlich

460b. Gifts from enemies are dangerous.

Gifts fall under many categories.

Some are recycled - since the person doesn't need it.
Some are given - since they are inevitable and must be given.

Some are given matching the status of the giver.
These are expensive gifts for impressing the others.

Some others are given matching the status of the receiver.
These are indirect insults to the poor relatives and friends.

But gifts from known and sworn enemies
are the most dangerous among all types of gifts!

footnotes:
Geschenke = Gifts
von = from
Feinden = enemies
sind = are
gefährlich = dangerous
