Icelandic Proverbs

Icelandic Proverbs

Hate not the man, but the weakness

If you wish to know what a man is, make him king

It is better one time to see things than one hundred times to hear about them

You will reach your destination even though you travel slowly

The revenge that is postponed is not forgotten

Speak the truth, but keep one hand on the sword

Sin is not perfect until one prides oneself on it

A dog bites the stone, not him who throws it

An unlucky girl may make a good woman.

Blind is a man without a book

Character is always corrupted by prosperity
