THREE SICILIAN PROVERBS TO GIVE HOPE IN TIMES OF PANDEMIC

I

Bontimpu e malutimpu

Un dura tuttu u timpu

Neither good weather

Nor bad weather lasts forever.

It means that all horrible situations eventually come to an end.

II

Quartara iaccata un si rumpi mai

A damaged amphora never breaks

It means that sometimes an old person with aches lives longer than a young person who looks healthy.

III

Cori allegru

Diu l’aiuta

God helps cheerful people

It means that good or bad mood attracts good or bad luck.
