Berømte citater

Vi kender alle citater fra kendte personer på vores eget sprog og fra vores egen kultur — men hvor mange kender vi fra andre sprog og andre steder? Her er en mulighed for at opdage visdom, sandheder (eller halve sandheder!), kreativitet, humor og nogle gange direkte kynisme fra en række kulturer og sprog såvel som om deres oprindelse. Har du en favorit? Vi vil blive glade, hvis du også vil bidrage med nogle, som du kender!
