Japanese Proverbs

A few Japanese Proverbs, courtesy of the BrightSide

Fast means going slowly without interruption.


A long journey always begins with a short one.


Grief, like a torn dress, should always be left at home.


He who endures for just half an hour longer than his opponent can achieve victory.


If a woman wants something, she’ll climb a mountain to get it.

Ask a question and you feel shame for a moment. Not asking and not knowing means you will feel shame for your whole life.
