For a change: A Choice of Corsican Proverbs

 

 

A strada bedda un hè mai longa
– A clear path never seems long

A capù in ghio falanù ancù i botti
– Downhill, even the barrels roll

A donà sa duvè u diavolù mette a coda
– A woman knows the tricks of the devil

A barca di centu padroni piglia fondu
– The boat of a hundred captains, sinks

A chi combatte cu i zoppi diventa zoppu è rangu
– Who associates with the shaky – become so
A chi stanta, a chi ruzziga
– Some hoard, others waste
