Proverbially Speaking genre: He Said, She Said

"Proverbially Speaking" is a recurring posting here at Thought Theater. The intention of the category "He Said, She Said" is to present sayings, proverbs, and quotations that provoke thought. From time to time, I will try to relate them to current events. Having grown up in an Italian family with immigrant grandparents, I had the fortune, over the years, to learn numerous sayings that had been translated from Italian into English. I've long been fascinated by such sayings and proverbs and particularly the lessons they seek to impart. You're encouraged to comment on the ones presented as well as add your own sayings, proverbs, and quotations for discussion. The following is one of my favorites:

This old saying was recited to me on numerous occasions when I sought to make an issue of something that others felt would be best left's akin to another saying...pick your battles well. It goes like this:

"If you kick every stone in the road, the only sure thing you will end up with is a sore toe."
