#323 / Dicho
A lo hecho, pecho
The Spanish language is full of "dichos," which are sayings that compress a large meaning into a few words, and construct an elegant, origami thought out of a folded phrase.
This phrase, one of my favorites, is a little remedy against despair.
A lo hecho, pecho.
Whatever comes against you, just stand fast.
Whatever blows may come ...
We don't back down.
Whatever fate afflicts us (there are so many afflictions)
We'll never quit.
