Yiddish Proverb Sunday! Read, so you should learn!

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

This week's proverb has a nice rhyme in the Yiddish that unfortunately doesn't carry over to English, despite the fact that it has enough cognates to be almost understandable to an English reader.

Nice cynical philosophy, too.

Der mentsh tracht, un Got lacht.

Man thinks and God laughs.

One of my favorite spots has been the NaNoWriMo adopt-a-plot tahred. Sometimes reading through it can totally spark your imagination, and I've taken one or two plots from there myself (though of course by the time I'm through with them, they've been so changed and modified and that they're barely recognizeable as the blurb I began with). Your links look really interesting. I'll have to investigate them.
