I’m always fascinated by the “words of wisdom” that come from other cultures. For instance, in Italy they say “Cercare il pelo nell’ uovo,” which means to “look for the hair in the egg,” or in other words, to find fault or nit-pick!
In Spanish, I’m drawn to “Poco a poco se anda lejos.” This translates to “Little by little, one goes far.”
And now, thanks to Linda Leekley, my new favorite Norwegian expression is “Some dei gamle sungo, so kveda dei unge.” In her latest blog post over at In the Know, Linda translates it to “As the old birds sing, so do the young ones tweet.”
And as it turns out, it’s a good lesson for some of us “Old Bird” nurses!
