Hello everyone. Today we bring you a compilation of Inca Proverbs.
In this compilation we will try to highlight all the qualities and virtues of the Inca society as well as highlight those Inca proverbs that have had the most impact over time, since such a civilization has not existed for many years. Unfortunately, the arrival of Columbus to America radically changed the way of life of the members of the Inca community.
That civilization was located in Peru, so we will find that most proverbs are written in the Quechua language.
We hope you like them and that you draw valuable conclusions about how the Incas lived and thought.
Inca proverbs and their meaning
Without further ado, let’s get to know a few proverbs and reflections that have transcended the centuries.
“The hatum loves sua, loves llula, loves quella”
The translation of this Inca maxim would be: “The important thing: do not steal, do not lie, do not be idle.” A kind of basic moral guide.
“Take off your pants in the corner”
A phrase used to punish someone.
“It’s good culantro but not that good”
When we take a situation to the extreme, even in good faith, we can get hurt or hurt someone.
“You believe the last suck of Mango”
It is used to designate that a person is conceited and arrogant.
“Whoever takes a lot of space, the less he tightens up”
If you are not able to focus on a few things and do them well, it is because perhaps you are trying to cover too many tasks. Effectiveness requires concentration and precision.
“What the ugly one has, the pretty one wants”
The meaning is obvious. Human beings always aspire to have what we do not possess, and we do not value who we are or the virtues that we really have today.
We hope you liked these Inca Proverbs and that you have a good day. These are very interesting proverbs and at the same time very enriching for life. Share them on your social networks if you found them inspiring.
