GERMAN SAYING

DUMMHEIT UND STOLZ WACHST AM EINEM HOLZ.

Submitter comment: TRANSLATION: STUPIDITY AND PRIDE (ARROGANCE) GROW ON THE SAME
WOOD. THE MEANING HERE IS THAT BEING PROUD IS SYNONYMOUS TO BEING
STUPID. WHAT IS GOOD FOR ONE IS NOT NECESSARILY GOOD OR BETTER FOR
ANOTHER. WHERE YOU FIND PRIDE, YOU WILL FIND STUPIDITY.
THE COMMENT IS IN THE WORDS OF MY INFORMANT.
A RHYMING METAPHORICAL PROVERB.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; GROSSE POINTE SHORES

Subject headings: Ballad Song Dance Game Music Verse -- Proverb Proverb

Date learned: 11-00-1977 ; 00-00-1962
