If It Wasn’t for the Wind

If you are a bridge, everyone will step over you.
Pure gold knows no rust.
It’s no use flying before your wings grow.
If it wasn’t for the wind, spiders would cover the sky with cobwebs.

This is a found poem and it consists of Serbian proverbs. I used this source. The translation is mine. 


  1. :D I'm a little bit of Serbian (but mostly Slovenian) and yet would not recognise these as Serbian proverbs. Much wisdom in them though.

    1. Yes, I know what you mean. They were unfamiliar to me too, that's why I chose them. I didn't want to go for the cliches that I have been listening to since childhood and I was surprised by how many new ones I was able to find.
