Macedonian Proverbs

Sayings of Macedonian origin

Where force rules, justice does not exist.

What one fool can ensnare, not a thousand sages can fix.

Think twice, say once.

The brain is not in the pocket, but in the head.

If my neighbor is happy, my own work will go easier, too.

Feed a dog, he stops barking at you.

Enjoy yourself; for there is nothing in the world we can call our own.

Brother does not feed his brother but it is hard not having one.

A good friend is recognized in times of trouble.

A bear that dances in your neighbor’s house might soon dance in yours.

Macedonian Proverbs

Macedonia, officially the Republic of Macedonia, is a country located in the central Balkan Peninsula in Southeast Europe. It is one of the successor states of the former Yugoslavia, from which it declared independence in 1991. It became a member of the United Nations in 1993 but, as a result of a dispute with Greece over its name, it was admitted under the provisional reference of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

The Macedonian is a South Slavic language, spoken as a first language by some two million people, principally in the Republic of Macedonia and the Macedonian Diaspora, with a smaller number of speakers throughout the transnational region of Macedonia. It is the official language of the Republic of Macedonia and an official minority language in parts of Albania, Romania and Serbia.

“Today over Macedonia” is the national anthem of Macedonia.


Today over Macedonia, is being born

The new sun of liberty.

Macedonians are fighting,

Fighting for their rights!

Now once again the flag stands

The Forests of Macedonia are singing

New songs, new papers

Macedonia is liberated

Lives in liberty!

Macedonia is liberated

Lives in liberty!

Do not cry dear mother Macedonia,

Raise your head proudly high,

Macedonia is free

Free to live!
