ARMENIAN APHORISMS AND SAYINGS By Avetik Issahakian Translated by: Ara Baliozian I fell, I got up I lost and I found... Of all certain things The most certain is doubt. ** Have pity on all, But love none, Don't tempt men, live a humble life; There is no other path to a happy life. ** We are like feathers Fortune a strong wind That blows and snatches at its whim. ** To be on the safe side Avoid a dog's front end And a mule's rear end. ** Teaching consists in opening the mind; The mouth will open by itself. Ara Baliozian was born in Athens, Greece and received his education in Venice, Italy. He lives in Ontario, Canada and writes in Armenian and English and has published over 20 books of his works. He has translated works from Armenian writers, such as Grigor Zohrab, Zabel Yessayan, and Kostan Zarian into English.
