A proverb a day to brighten the day.

466a. Liebe ist blind. So ist Hass!
Wir scheinen aus unbekannten Gründen zu lieben oder zu hassen

466b. Love is blind. So is hatred!
We seem to love or hate for unknown reasons.

Love and Hate known as the 'rAgam' and 'dhwEsham' in spiritual language
appear to be the two sides of the very same coin called 'kAmam'.

When the unlimited love is dead, immediately infinite hatred is born.
We know how cruelly the ex lovers punish their once beloveds!

footnotes:
Liebe = Love
ist = is
blind = blind
So = So
ist = is
Hass = hatred!
Wir = We
scheinen = appear
zu = to
lieben = love
oder = or
zu = to
hassen = hate
aus = for / out of
unbekannten = unkown
Gründen = reasons

A proverb a day to brighten the day.

470a. Ein helles Gesicht kann ein schlechtes Herz verbergen!

470b. A fair face may hide a foul heart!

People love fair skin - on themselves and on everyone they come across.
The color of skin had created more problems than any other physical feature.

Those dancers had practiced for months and years to give a sterling performance.
But all one can comment after seeing it is "All the dancers are dark skinned!!! :(

footnotes:
Ein = A
helles = fair / bright
Gesicht = face
kann = can
verbergen = hide
ein = a
schlechtes = foul
Herz = heart

Lovely brown​

Brown is beautiful!

White men want their skin turn brown;
For hours they roast under the hot sun!

Wearing next to nothing for uniform tan;
Yet we dislike our natural color a brown!

Fairness creams are on the sale;
For not just female but also male!

Why this craze for what we is not ours?
Why do we crave for what is not ours?

Skins are made just the body to protect;
And help the change in temperature detect!

To keep away the crows, flies and fleas;
From filling with flesh & blood their bellies!

Think no more on the color of outer skin;
Just make sure that it is healthy and clean!

Half the problem in this world are born;
From the next door girl to Troy’s Helen;

Out of the color of the skin on the exterior!
None bothers about the mind in the interior!

A proverb a day to brighten the day.

472a. Das Unterrichten der Schüler perfektioniert das Lernen des Lehrers.

472b. Teaching the students perfects the learning of the teacher.

Whenever I want to learn something, I try to teach through my writing.
This makes the learning process much easier and more interesting!

WHY???

To teach someone else something, we must have a thorough knowledge.
We can't teach something to someone, which we ourselves do not know!

So the new German sentence I learned today resonates the same idea.
Lehren heißt Lernen = Teaching is called Learning (How short and sweet!)

I made it even shorter and sweeter thus!
Lehren ist Lernen = Teaching is Learning!

So whenever something is being taught,
both the teacher and the student benefit!

footnotes:
Das = The
Unterrichten = teaching
der Schüler = the students
perfektioniert = makes perfect
das Lernen = the learning
des Lehrers = of the teachers.

A proverb a day to brighten the day.

474a. Die Kälber wagen es, wo die Kühe Angst haben.

474b. The calves dare, where the cows scare.

Very similar to the famous quote
"Fools rush in where angels fear to tread"

Ignorance is bliss. The less we know the happier we are!
Ignorance infuses one with courage - often misplaced!

Experience keeps a hard school...
but fools will learn nowhere else!

Die = The
Kälber = calves
wagen es = dare
wo = where
die = the
Kühe = cows
haben = have
Angst = fear.
