One who buys needs one hundred eyes; one is enough for him who sells.”   —   German Proverb

(Gotta love the directness of these German sayings!  This came up in my Google Image search for German Proverbs.  It may not be appropriate, but it made me smile.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

There is no eel so small but it hopes to become a whale.”   —   German Proverb

(My people!  Well, at least half.  I’m English and Dutch on my Mom’s side.  Even so . . . I don’t get it.  With the negative and the “but”.  Are they saying an eel longs to be a whale, meaning bigger, badder, and – supposedly – better?  Top of the food chain kinda thing?  Most people want to be richer and more respected, I guess, but not all.  “Be just what you is, not what you is not. Folks what do this has the happiest lot.”   Can anyone dig back for that one?  It’s from my childhood, the early ’60s!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
