Let's have some fun! Post it in Tagalog then its English Translation! "Walang naninira sa bakal Kundi ang Sariling Kalawang." "Nobody destroys iron but its own corrosion." Your Turn!

As August is the month of the Filipino language, I think this proverb is appropriate. Ang hindi magmahal sa sariling wika ay mahigit pa sa hayop at malansang isda. - from Jose Rizal, Philippine national hero (he said this when he was 7 years old) Translation: He who does not love his language is worse than a beast and a soiled fish. (am not sure if soiled is the correct translation for malansa)
