I really feel I owe it you you to try myself to make sense out of the proverbs and “idiotisms” I gave you in the last post.
A bad arrangement is better than a process.
This is similar to “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.” It is better to hold on to what you have than to give it up for a promise of something better.
In the country of blinds, the one eyed men are kings.
This is not too far from the real proverb: “In the country of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.” To lead, you only have to know a little more than everyone else.
To build castles in Espagnish.
The original is “to build castles in Spain.” It means to make unrealistic plans.
There is not any ruler without a exception.
There is no rule without exceptions. Nothing works every time.
Take out the live coals with the hand of the cat.
Handle live coals—dangerous matters—gently and carefully.
Do you agree?
