Andy inspired me to ask my class about Turkish idioms. Here’s what I got:
“After you drink hot milk, you’ll blow on your yogurt.”
If you burn yourself, you will have an over-exaggerated response to not hurt yourself again. I think this can be true for relationships with others, as well.
“A grape is looking at another grape, they are getting darker.”
Evil corrupts good, rather than good bringing up the evil. I’m not sure how I feel about this one.
“If you plant wind, you’ll harvest a storm.”
They explained this one in terms of arguments – if you say something mean, the other person will respond even meaner. It will only get bigger from there.
