Good morning all. Today we bring you a collection of Inca proverbs.
In this compilation, we will try to highlight all the qualities and virtues of Inca society as well as the Inca proverbs that have had the most impact over time, because such a civilization has not existed for many years. Unfortunately, the arrival of Columbus in America radically changed the way of life of members of the Inca community.
This civilization was located in Peru, so we will see that most of the proverbs are written in Quechua.
We hope you like it and draw some valuable conclusions about how the Incas lived and thought.
Inca proverbs and their meaning
Without further ado, let’s discover some proverbs and thoughts that have transcended the centuries.
“Hatum loves his, loves Llula, loves this”
The translation of this Inca maxim would be: “The important thing: do not steal, do not lie, do not be idle.” A sort of basic moral guide.
“He’s wearing shorts in the corner”
A phrase used to punish someone.
“Well it’s cilantro but not so much”
When we take a situation to the extreme, even in good faith, we can come out unscathed or hurt someone.
“You think the last mango sucker”
It is used to denote that a person is conceited and arrogant.
“He who kisses a lot, doesn’t hug a lot”
If you are unable to focus on certain things and do them right, it may be because you are trying to cover too many tasks. Efficiency requires focus and precision.
“What the ugly has, the beautiful wants”
The meaning is obvious. Human beings still aspire to have what we don’t have, and we don’t value who we are or the virtues we actually have today.
We hope you enjoyed these Inca proverbs and have a nice 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.
