I think it would be useful to have a topic on proverbs, they are an interesting aspect of the lanuage. Post here the ones you find interesting, or you want to learn the meanings.

it ürür, kervan yürür.

My favorite. "Great enterprises are not deflected by the yips and yaps of petty critics."

Literally -- "Dogs bark, the caravan moves on."

Alyaa, that proverb is actually 'Damlaya damlaya göl olur'. The meaning is correct, but gül means rose, lake is göl

there was kind of mistake in the proverb
(( allah gumus kapiyi kaparsa , altin kapiyi acar))

if God closed a silver door, God will open a golden door
