I collected some of their common proverbs which have deep meanings and indicate what kind of life a true Sindhi must lead. These are given in Roman with English translation.
-Aj hamaan; subhaaney tamaan: Today I suffer, tomorrow you might.
-Baanee saayee jee saayee. Gaayee bukhyey jo bukhyo: The grass of an honest person will remain green, no matter how many people continue to partake of it, and remain ungratified.
-Chintaa chikhyaa samaan: Then how does one get peace and joy? Sindhis advised:
-Ehro kam kajey; Jo laal labhey; Ain preet bee rehjee achey: Let us act in such a manner that we find the sought for gem and we continue to retain the friendship.
-Hikree latey sau patey: When one door closes, another hundred open. Hence the saying:
-Jeeyu khush ta jahaan khush: If one is happy, the world is a cheerful place to live in.
-Khushee jairee khuraak koney. Gantee jairo marz koney: Which means that there is no nourishment like joy, and no disease is worse than worry.
-Uhaayee zibaan ussa mein vyaarey. Uhaayee zibaan chhaaon mein vyaarey: Which literally means that the same tongue makes you sit under the sun and it is the same tongue that makes you sit in the shade.
-Vandey viraayey sukh paaye: Sharing what one has with ones brethren, gives happiness.
However, many these proverbs are found in Punjabi culture too. But, when wisdom conveyed by these proverbs is followed, life can be meaningful and happy.
