Discussion # 3: Proverbs

One of the many ways culture is learned is through proverbs, or sayings, that give insight into the values of that culture. Some proverbs from the United States are “actions speak louder than words”, “the early bird gets the worm”, and “the squeaky wheel gets the grease”. Some proverbs from other cultures are “life is a dance, not a race (Irish)”, “a man’s tongue is his sword (Arab)”, and “a zebra does not despise its stripes (African)”.
