Afghan proverbs (ضرب المثل)



Here are Afghan proverbs (ضرب المثل) that I learned from language study.
I will occasionally update this page. 


ا-۱ دل به دل راه دارد.م

- There is a way from heart to heart.
- Love begets love.

 ادل تنگ نباشد، جای تنگ نیست.م

 - If your heart is not jealous and greedy, the resources are never scarce.

ا سالی که نیکوست از بهارش پیداست.م

- A good year is determined by its spring.
- Character and talent show up in the early years of life.

ا زیاد خوردن ماهی تپیدن، کم خوردن آهو دویدن.م

- When you eat too much, you will palpitate like a landed fish. When you eat less, you will run like a deer.

ا نان و پیاز پیشانی باز.م

- Only with bread and onions, you have to be happy.
  (Be pleased with what Allah gives you.) 
- If you happily welcome guests even only with bread and onions, guests will enjoy your hospitality. (If you prepare a big dinner with an unpleasant feeling, guests will not enjoy your hospitality.)
