Croatian Proverbs

QUOTE 14, JULY 2016

Greetings this week come from Croatia where I have just spent an amazing week exploring this beautiful country and the wonderful Elafiti Islands.  Here are a few Croatian proverbs to inspire you.


Dream and keep dreaming until your dreams come true.

If you take too long to choose, you will end up with the leftovers.

Polite words open iron gates

Check before you bite if it is bread or stone.

If the beard were all, the goat might preach.
(Meaning – Mere formal signs of being an authority does not make you one)

Barking dogs seldom bite.

When one door shuts, another opens.

Strike while the iron is hot.


Zivot je lijep!
Cheers – Life is beautiful.  Let’s live.
