Since AF Filipino Section has already been invaded with threads of Filipino words with their corresponding English meanings how about taking it to the next level by giving out Words of Wisdom/Thoughts that are purely Filipino with English Translations.

Ex. Aanhin mo ang damo
Kung patay na ang kabayo.

(What's the use of grass/hay
When the horse is already dead.)

PS: If all Filipino Sayings/Thoughts have been posted already we could always make our own but with its unique Filipino sense. icon_smile.gif

"Kung gusto mong magtayo nang palasyo sa ulap, dapat lang na lagyan mo nang halige."

-Pag mangangarap ka, kailangang paghirapan ito.

If you want to build a palace in the clouds, it's only proper for you to put foundation in it.

-If you dream something lofty, you work for it.

Ay siya ring aanihin

Kidding aside. icon_redface.gif

-Madali ang maging tao, pero mahirap magpakatao.

In English: It is easy to be a man, but It is hard to make oneself human.

-Ang umaayaw ay di nagwawagi, ang nagwawagi ay di umaayaw.

In English: He who quits never succeed, he who succeeds never quit.

-Walang mahirap na gawa pag dinaan sa tiyaga.

In English: No undertaking is difficult if pursued with perseverance. icon_smile.gif

Kapag may tiyaga, may nilaga

Aanhin pa ang damo kung patay na ang kabayo?
What good is grass when the horse is already dead?

Ang katamaran ay kapatid ng kagutuman.
Laziness is the sibling of starvation.

Damitan mo man ang matsing, matsing pa rin.
A monkey dressed up is still a monkey.

Habang maikli ang kumot, matutong mamaluktot.
While the blanket is short, learn to bend (to fit).

Walang matigas na tinapay sa mainit na kape.
No bread is too hard for warm coffee.

ito bisaya:

Kon gusto ka nga maka kita ug higala,
Pautanga siya ug ayaw paningla.

If one wishes to be friends with his fellows,
Let him buy on credit and never collect the money.

kung gusto mong makakita ng kakosa,
Pautangin mo at huwag mong singilin.

pagkahaba-haba man ng prusisyon, iiksi din yon!

(however long the procession is, it'll shorten out eventually!) ahahaha

this is a kalye variation...

the original one says:
pagkahaba-haba man ng prusisyon
sa simbahan din ang tuloy noon!

(however long the procession is, it'll end up in the church anyway!)

matalino man ang matsing ito'y unggoy pa rin...

A monkey might be smart...but he's still a monkey!

No no just joking:
Matalino man ang matsing napaglalalalangan din!
A monkey might be smart but it can still be outsmarted/deceived..

Ang naglalakad ng matulin kung matinik ay madadapa....

Nyek!

kung gusto may paraan, kung ayaw may dahilan. literally translated as "if desired, a way/method exists; if not an excuse will" (a variation of where there's a will there's a way) very true
