Quotes in Spanish ~ Frases en Espanol

Quotes:  To repeat, cite or refer Synonyms: citation, citing, cutting, excerpt, extract, passage, quote, recitation, reference, saying, selection

I’m fully bilingual but haven’t posted much in Spanish even though it is a big influence in my life.  For example, that’s were I get my love of quotes.  In Puerto Rico I grew up hearing all kinds of dichos and refranes from grandparents, uncles, friends … everyone.  My family is Puertorican but I know other countries also have their funny sayings and proverbs.

Here are some examples of really popular ones.

En boca cerrada no entran moscas. 
No flies can enter a closed mouth.
El camarón que se duerme se lo lleva la corriente.
A sleeping shrimp will get carried away by the current.

Then there were colmos = funny ironies (no one should wonder why I’m so sarcastic 😉

¿Cuál es el colmo de un oso panda?
Que le tomen fotos a color, y que salgan en blanco y negro.

¿Cuál es el colmo de un ciego?
Que se llame Casimiro Buenavista.

And here are some quotes for bilingual quote lovers.
