Today’s Sicilian Saying is a funny one, still used today!
Prima ri parrari mastica i paroli
“Before you speak, chew the words”
You’ve already figured out where this is going, haven’t you? It is an invitation to reflect well before speaking. Too often, perhaps in the wake of emotions or feelings, we give vent to our moods without thinking too much about it. What do you think about this Sicilian proverb? Let us know in the comments!
