Today’s Bajan Proverb: ‘If greedy wait, hot will cool’

November 5, 2021

Today’s Bajan Proverb can be applied literally to some of you… maybe even right now.

We’re more focused on its symbolic meaning however.

It is: “If greedy wait, hot will cool”.

Do you know what it means?

Yes your hot food will cool if you leave it a while but that’s not what we’re talking about.

Just like you will be happy not to have a burnt mouth when you wait for your food to cool, this saying is stressing that being patience will help you achieve your goals.

There are now 25 days before Barbados becomes a Parliamentary Republic.
