Finland - A Proverb for Peace (Pace)
Home

Finland

Riita repii, rauha rakentaa.

A quarrel will destroy, peace will build.

La lite distrugge, la pace costruisce.

 

Parempi laiha sopu kuin lihava riita.

Better a tiny agreement than a big fight.

Meglio un piccolo accordo che un grande litigio.

 

The meaning: you must always and in every situation to live to gain  peace.

Significato: devi sempre ed in ogni situazione vivere per conquistare la pace.
