One of the books I am reading has Italian proverbs to start each chapter (as ya do) and I was wondering if we have (roughly) equivalent ones.
Veni, vidi, vici. (I think we all know that one… ;))
Chi ha fretta, vada piano. (To go fast we must go slow)
‘More haste, less speed’. Easy!
Chi zappa in fretta, racclogiera piangendo. (Hoe in haste, harvest in tears)
‘Reap what you sew’. Or ‘Marry in haste, repent at leisure’.
But what about:
Botte buona fa buona vino. (A good cask makes good wine)
Cui cerva, trova: cui secuta, vinci. (One who seeks, finds. One who perseveres, wins)
