Famous quotes

Ilkoll familjari ma’ kwotazzjonijiet minn personalitajiet famużi fil-lingwi u l-kulturi tagħna stess – iżda kemm nafu minn pajjiżi oħra, b’lingwi oħra? Hawn għandek ċans li tiskopri l-għerf, il-veritajiet (jew nofs veritajiet!), il-kreattività, l-umoriżmu u, xi drabi, iċ-ċiniżmu minn bosta kulturi u lingwi, kif ukoll l-oriġini tagħhom. Għandek xi waħda favorita? Nieħdu gost ħafna jekk tagħtina xi wħud minn tiegħek!

Eenzaam maar niet alleen. Lonely but not alone.

By Queen Wilhelmina
It´s the title of her book published in 1959. Queen Wilhemina (1880-1962) reigned for an amazing 50 years (1898-1948). Sadly in her personal life she was married to a prince of ill-repute and she never received any love. So when she wrote her biography in the fifties, she gave it the sad title ‘Eenzaam maar niet alleen’.

De best stuurlui staan aan wal. The best helmsman stands ashore.

By Unknown
The origin is unknown but it is common already by the 17th century. It implies that those seeing a ship in a storm from the shore think they can better determine how the ship should be steered while in reality they would most likely panic in that situation themselves. It is used to indicate that it is easy to criticise other´s work, when one is merely watching from the sidelines.
