Idioms: Mine

Same goes to poems: Mine

Note: Why I take cigarette breaks? I copy literary gems. During these breaks, a few of these gems are edited out and transformed to become idioms of mine. I’m contemplating publishing these idioms of mine, which I sincerely consider mine.

Ce concept Invariable de necessite (Maitre/ Escalve) a ete maintenu au fils des temps, par toutes les institutions, civiles, religieuses et locales. Les classes d’elites, celles qui echappent aux lois, survivent parceque ce symbol d’invariabilite doit etre preserver.

Les gestes qu’ils reproduisent en commun? La communaute des gestes ou des gens? La progression de l’humanite a transformee nos entités concretes en un symbol abstrait que l’on defend avec acharnement, au moyens de lois, discutions en abstraction, et appliquees selectivement

Le conflit permanent entre Maître et Esclave? Est-ce que cette these compresse l’eclipse d’une civilization au detriment d’une autre? Il faudrait changer la definition de civilite et de civilisation pour recouvrire notre humanite. Et pourtant, en politique, c’est la meme soupe qu’on nous sert en tout temps.

Il vaut mieux de chercher a connaitre le monde et trebucher sur un tresor, que de la connaitre pour faire une fortune? En tout cas, fortune ou tresor, if faut changer de perspective pour vivre heureux.

My backlog of articles to post on my blog is running in the hundreds: I had decided to post 3 a day, at most. The same routine is taking roots for my notes, destination FB and tweet. I decided to post 6 a day, and the backlog is increasing exponentially

If you want to make a deal to lose in a game: let it be an individual game. That’s your negotiated and consented deal. When it comes to negotiate a team losing games, it is very wrong at any level and no excuses are admissible. A team must have a tacit oath of loyalty that every member is to perform at best he can, and enjoy the friendship of the members. Otherwise, morale is chattered for a very long period: better search for another team

When teaching in universities, the students often forgot my name: They opted for Sir. Queen Elizabeth was obfuscated

Les panteres peuvent etre apprivoiser? En les norrissant proprement? Comme les prisoniers qui savent leur droits. Le pire est de relacher les panthers et les prisoniers qui sont blessés avant de les avoir traités

Ruling by a simple majority leaves the rest of the community in deserved suspicion that the majority will rig the next election laws in their favour. Unless the majority must earn its power by at least 5% difference with the second party: A hefty advantage that will Not scare off  the majority into drastic election law reforms.

Ruling by a simple arithmetic proportional law has proven to lead to gridlock as in most European governing systems. Some kinds of a cascading discrete levels of permitted proportions must be  carefully studied

Chaque individu a des appartenance multiple: Religion, sect, ses langues, tribue, nation, province, education, voyage, statu financier, urbain/rural, famille (large, petite, eparpillee…) C’ est bien si chaque citoyen peut assumer ses appartenance multiple. Ce qui est necessaire c’ est que les parties politiques et institutions (public et privees) exhibent ces multiple identitees. Il y aura des dechirement pour tout etre, meme les plus informés, mais au moin que le potential d’education est mis en marche

The deadly sin of Da3esh strategy is that it forgot that islam was meant to transcend ethinicity, languages and race.

You may graduate in engineering or natural sciences, but acquiring an experimental mind is Not in the educational program. Students in social sciences, psychology, sociology… study experimental design, learn to control and run experiments…They have a far better experimental mind than those in natural sciences, those supposed to be la crème de la crème in intelligence. Unless the educational programs are reformed to include design of experiment and running sophisticated experiments… it is an illusion that the engineers and natural scientists will make a significant reform in society.

And if the Jews in Israel are forced to return to their country of origins, simply because we believe their colonial behaviour is trampling on our existential characters? The same reasoning that colonial nations are voting against immigrants

La spontaneite n’est pas une affaire mentale: c’est un style de vie. Toujours apprendre avec joie.

La grande consession globale: dans les lieux de travailles, aux institutions publiques… ne prier pas, n’exige pas un local consacré a la priere, ne precher pas ton soi-disant religion. On s’en fout de tes abstractions et de tes genuflexions… Khafef te2l dammak

Bon, je comprend: quand on debarque dans un pays pour y demeurer, il vaut mieux apprendre et respecter la langue, les lois civiles et les droits civils. Ce que je ne comprend pas: Pouquoi dois-je  respecter l’Histoire monsongere et les coutumes qui ne valent pas mieux que les notre?

Il y a toujours, faute de mieux, la passion de l’echec. Avec un brin approprié de philosophie, ca peut etre la plus reconfortante des passions. Le malheur, ca arrive un peu au tard. Mais bien, une passion est une passion et vaut mieux que nulle

L’imprimerie, la poudre a canon, et la boussole. La dissemination de la culture, la resistance avec des armes et moyens apropries, et une idee de soi: “who are we as a people? What do we want to be as a unified nation?” We lack all these necessary tools to confront the assault of the new world order. And we persist on romancing our weakening status among the nations and societies.

Don’t apologize for what you did. Better, no need to apologize for what you failed to do. You lived and assumed as best you tried.

Etre plus instruit que les autres ne veut rien dire. Il faut y attache un facteur attrayant pour que la connaissance devienne necessaire et suffisante. C’est un de ces traits attrayants que l’on cherche vaillamment a mettre en relief.

Avec l’age, ce qui est adequat dans la societe s’oublie: on deviant trop ferme et inebranlable dans nos idee-fixes.

Comment apprendre que je ne suis rien et que pourtant je suis digne de vivre? (en nous comparons aux arbres?). N’apprend pas l’impossible: apprend a devenir quelque chose au moins.

13 of the funniest Egyptian proverbs and sayings

How common with your idioms?

Egyptian society has its own set of popular proverbs and sayings, passed down from earlier generations and protected like a prized cultural possession, but Egyptians manage to make proverbs a lot more fun.

Noha Medhat posted

While the sayings often express truths or offer valuable advice, sometimes they make no sense at all or are just so ridiculously funny that you forget the point they’re trying to make, however valid that point may be. These are some of the craziest.

1. “Emshi Fe Ganaza Wala Temshi Fe Gawaza”

The proverb “walk in a funeral but don’t walk into a marriage” could possibly mean that you shouldn’t get involved into someone else’s marriage, or that you shouldn’t arrange a marriage.

Either way, why are both of those worse than getting involved in a funeral? We’ll never know.

2.”Ya Wakhed El-Erd Ala Maloh Yeroh El-Mal We Yeod El-Erd Ala Haloh”

This proverb “If you take the monkey for money, the money will go away and the monkey will stay” basically means you shouldn’t marry for money, which is valid advice that just happens to be wrapped up in a ridiculous sentence.

3.”En kan Habibak Asal Matlhasoush Kolo”

“If your sweetheart is honey, don’t lick it all” is often used in situations when a loved one is being taken for granted, as you would take for granted of a jar of honey apparently.

4. “Temot El-Raa’sa We Westaha Beylaa’b”

Photo source: memegen.com

“The belly dancer dies while her waist is still moving” is the funnier Egyptian version of “old habits die hard”.

5. “Ekfei El-Edra Ala Famaha Tetlaa El-Bent Le Omaha”

Photo source: imgflip.com

Photo source: imgflip.com

Turn over the jar and the girl becomes like her mother” is one of the most widely used Egyptian proverbs in situations when a girl acts like her mother. But what does the jar have to do with that?

6. “Labes El-Bosa Tebaa’ Arousa”

Photo source: memecrunch.com

Photo source: memecrunch.com

It says “dress up the stick and it becomes a bride”, which could mean that looks can be deceiving or perhaps it cautions against false advertising? Interpretations are open to suggestions.

7. “Alil El-Bakht Yelaa’i El-Adm Fel Kersha”

Photo source: quickmeme.com

Photo source: quickmeme.com

It says “the unlucky one finds even bones in tender meat”, which is a popular Middle Eastern dish. The proverb is used when something unfortunate happens.

So instead of comforting the “unlucky” person, this doomed saying tells them that they can’t get away from bad luck!

8. “Ya Dakhel Ben El Basala We Eshretha Ma Yenobak Ela Sanetha”

Photo source: memegenerator.net

Photo source: memegenerator.net

“If you get between an onion and its peel you won’t get anything except its foul smell” is also an Egyptian version of “Keep your nose out of my business”.

9. “El Yetgawez Omi Aoloh Ya Ami”

Photo source: memegenerator.net

Photo source: memegenerator.net

“The one who marries my mother, I call him my uncle” is used in situations when you are forced to deal with someone you don’t want to deal with, so if you can’t beat them, join them!

10. “El Arousa Lel Arees Wel Gary Lel Mataees”

Photo source: quickmeme.com

Photo source: quickmeme.com

The bride gets a groom and everyone else becomes miserable” is a proverb that basically means weddings are unhappy occasions for everyone except the newly weds. But why?

11. “Ya Meamen Lel Regal Ya Memaen Lel Mayah Fel Gherbal”

Photo source: diylol.com

Photo source: diylol.com

“If you trust men, you trust water in a sieve” tells you all men can’t be trusted, or no one at all can be trusted, it’s not entirely clear.

12. “En Sarat Esraa’ Gamal We En Asha’t Esha’ Amar”

Photo source: quickmeme.com

Photo source: quickmeme.com

“If you’re going to steal, steal a camel and if you’re going to love, love someone as beautiful as the moon”. So basically it means live life to the fullest, or just steal a camel.

13. “Seketnaloh Dakhal Be Homaroh”

Photo source: quickmeme.com

Photo source: quickmeme.com

We let him be so he came in with his donkey” is a popular proverb that means don’t let someone walk all over you or take advantage of you. The donkey’s role in this is not clear.

Idioms borrowed from Shakespeare? And what did He borrow?

I can relate…Sometime circa 1990 i wrote “I am different from me who is not the same as ken”.
