Yiddish Proverb Sunday! Read, so you should learn!

Why Yiddish proverbs? Because it's my blog, and I like 'em. Also see here.

This one goes out by special request to my bud Karol at Alarming News.

Besser tsu shtarben shtai'endik aider tsu leben oif di k'ni.

Better to die upright than to live on your knees.

This one's got everything: a noble, stirring sentiment, and a fun English cognate in "k'ni" (knee).

I love it. I may use it as my blog tagline. It's a good thought to remember.
