Dannihas quoted2 years ago
In traditional fishing communities, it is unlucky to kill a seagull because they are believed to embody the souls of drowned fishermen
Dannihas quoted2 years ago
Curses, like chickens, come home to roost
This medieval version of our modern saying ‘what goes around comes around’ has its origins in fourteenth-century notions of morality. Chaucer gave expression to the idea at the end of the fourteenth century in ‘The Parson’s Tale’, with the line:
And ofte tyme swiche cursynge wrongfully retorneth agayn to hym that curseth, as a bryd that retorneth agayn to his owene nest.
