THREE USEFUL SICILIAN PROVERBS

1)- Pi rumpiri c’è sempri timpu (there is always time to break up).

You do not need to rush when you want to break up a friendship or a relationship. You can wait for a while.

2)- Bon timpu e malu timpu un dura tuttu u timpu (neither bad weather nor good weather lasts forever).

The proverb is an allegory of life, which passes through sunshine and storms. Sometimes it flows smoothly and other times stormy; but it is worth living to the fullest.

3)- Duppu acchianata c’è a scinnuta (after the climb there is the descent).

It means that bad situations will turn into good opportunities. On the other hand, life is made of ups and downs. In the end, everything will be alright. You just need faith in yourself and in your good luck.
