The National bird of Georgia is Not Declared
Whatever the wind brings he takes away with him. He who is in a hurry always arrives late. The rich eat when they want, the poor when they can. You can conquer the whole world with words, but not with drawn swords. You can buy ’em but they don’t stay bought. You can better drink from a small well with soft water than from the salty sea. You cackle in our place but you lay your eggs at someone else’s place. Whoever I love is the most beautiful. When you put your nose into the water your cheeks get wet as well. When three people say you are drunk, go to sleep.
