    Hey All,
    I came across this Russian proverb that I thought my GT people might find interesting....Here goes:

    In Russian: Бережёного Бог бережёт.
    Transliteration: Berezhonogo bog berezhot.
    Translation: God keeps those safe who keep themselves safe.

    Pretty cool, huh?

    If I recall correctly from previous posts, CitizenOfDreams is from Russia.

    Yup, Russian - which happens to be my mother tongue - is full of little pearls like this. :supergrin:

    Sounds very similar to "God helps those who help themselves". Not sure what the origins of that saying are, possibly Russian also.

    My favorite Russian proverb would have to be "Cure for hangover is to drink two hundred and fifty deciliter vodka and run for ten kilometer." That beats the pants off my least favorite Russian proverb as told to me by a stripper. "Make for me the money and I make for you the sexy."

    I always loved the Soviet military doctrine "Quantity has a quality all of it's own" Don't know how to say it in Russian.

    It simply shows that folks are pretty much the same, world over.

    It's always those who wish to "control" them, just for their own good mind you, who are the "trouble makers".
