WISDOM FROM OUR GRANDPARENTS - PROVERBS, SUPERSTITIONS and OTHER RULES OF LIFE

My grandmother, Kate, was a 'walking proverb'. She had one for every occasion. 

 

She also had little superstitions, that guided her behaviour, and to this day some of them have stuck with me.

 

Other things she said were neither proverbs or superstitions, just sayings she used each time a particular situation would arise and she wanted to make a point.

 

Since we are such a wide-spread KASfamily, I wonder if 'wisdom' like this is universal, or if each country has its own versions.

 

Let's share our grandparents' wisdom sayings to see what we can come up with and have some fun.

 

Please do not list more than one proverb, one superstion and one saying per post so that we all have a chance to 'digest' them.

I'd love to add something but all the ones I've heard you've already covered.  The "stitch in time saves 9" one really applies. I've sewed buttons onto 5 items of family clothing recently (I enjoy doing it) but found in checking the other buttons on each item that I needed to reinforce other buttons or they were about to take off too. There's so much wisdom in these old sayings.  

I love this: Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting.  :)

You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.

I wonder if that applies to asking our husbands and partners for more yarn???

That's a good one, Jeanne.  :))

We went to our closest city yesterday (about 90 kms away) and we didn't get home 'til about 6pm. Hubby complained most of the way home...he told me not to ask to do that again....so I won't....for a while....lol.
