German to English translations [PRO] Idioms / Maxims / Sayings
German term or phrase:Blamiere Dich täglich
This is one of those German sayings that don't (seem) to translate well. Any ideas?
Looks like there won't be a perfect match for this little slogan, which from what I can see on the Internet is more popular than it deserves to be. I found several possible translations, but they were either too droll ("You grow up the day you have your first real laugh at yourself") or too Biblical ("to be humble is to be exalted"). The one that works best for me is about as pithy and inspired as the original, which is to say, not at all: "Laugh at yourself...and have a great day!"
