çelişkili atasözleri



conflicting proverbs

There are a variety of proverbs that are all duly revered -- but nonetheless expressing CONFLICTING chunks of wisdom... Needless to say, what holds true for English holds true for Turkish, too; for human nature is the same everywhere, or so they say...

Bir dizi atasözü vardır: Hepsi gereğince saygı gören -- ama yine de kocaman kocaman ÇELİŞKİLİ bilgelik lokmaları sunan... İngilizce için geçerli olan bu durumun Türkçe için de geçerli olduğunu eklememe bilmem gerek var mı? Çünkü insanın doğası heryerde aynıymış -- yada öyle diyorlar işte...

Proverbs... Morals drawn from the life experience of countless generations... But who can fail to notice that they're sometimes quite conflicting? Quite apparently, whichever side of an argument one takes, one can usually find a proverb to support it. As Miguel Cervantes put it -- with tongue in cheek -- "There is no proverb that is not true." So, maybe the solution lies in "Moderation in all things."

Proverbs... All designed to teach us a lesson. Yes, but, what should the little innocent puppy do -- under attack as he is from two counter-counselling quarters? Have a look at the following illustration:

Since each of the following proverbs seems to be bedevilled by its opposite, I have decided to present them as ADVICE BY OPPOSING DEVILS !!
