SAYING

IF YOU SIT AT DONEY'S LONG ENOUGH, EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD
WILL PASS BY.

Submitter comment: LOU BROMLEY, OUR TRAVEL AGENT, AND I WERE SITTING AT DONEY'S
ON THE VIA VENETO IN ROME. THIS WAS DURING MY "WANDER WITH
WIMSEY" ART STUDY TOUR OF EUROPE IN 1966. TRAFFIC, BOTH
PEDESTRIAN AND AUTO, WAS ALMOST AS HEAVY AS IN THE DAYTIME.
HE TOLD ME THIS PHRASE AND SAID EVERYONE WHO COMES TO ROME
EVENTUALLY COMES TO DONEY'S BECAUSE IT IS SO FAMOUS.
DONEY'S (DOH-NAY'S) IS A RESTAURANT WITH A SIDEWALK CAFE
IN FRONT.

Where learned: ITALY ; ROME

Subject headings: PROVERB -- Proverbial Apothegm Maxim
