Hammering while the sword hot #3 (permalink) Fri May 06, 2005 11:07 am   Hammering while the sword hot
 

Dear freinds,

Do you know Thailand? We have the proverb similarity. And I would like to express with pride.
"It is easier if you make a sword by hammering while the sword is hot."

(I wonder if anyone kindly correct my grammar usage)
Thank you,

PS

Also in Chinese, we have a idiom "趁热打铁,which means exactly the same as "strike while the iron is hot".

In our South Indian Language (Tamil) we have a proverb with almost the same theme..''Kaatru Ullapothey Thootrikkol.." (Means: filter the paddy when there is wind..)
