A Taste of Yiddish 4.51


this week's proverb
איין אומגליק לערענט אונדז אויס מער ווי טויזענט עצות

transliterated
eyn umglik lernt undz oyz mer vi toyzent eytses

the proverb actually means
one tragedy teaches us more than a thousand pieces of advice

translated to Hebrew
טרגדיה אחת מלמדת אותנו יותר מאלף עצות
