FRENCH VOCABULARY LESSON: LEARN 8 POSITIVE SAYINGS

SALUT TOUT LE MONDE !

Today I thought I’d fight another preconceived idea about the French. They are said to have a bad temper, to be negative. Well, I’d like to show you that positive thinking does exist in France ! First we had Lorie, a young singer who had a hit called « LA POSITIVE ATTITUDE » a few years back. But even long before Lorie, we had positive sayings, DES DICTONS POSITIFS, in the French language itself. Here are a few of them to keep you in the right frame of mind !

L’ESPOIR FAIT VIVRE = Hope is what makes us live.

FRENCH DIALOG:

Ex. VOUS ESPÉREZ ÊTRE UN JOUR PARFAITEMENT BILINGUE EN FRANÇAIS ?

Voix off screen : VOUS POUVEZ VOUS ACCROCHEZ !

MAIS, ÇA VA PAS NON ? BIEN SÛR QUE C’EST POSSIBLE. ACCROCHEZ-VOUS !

SOURIS À LA VIE, ELLE NE TE SOURIT QUE SI TU LUIS SOURIS. = Smile to life, it only smiles at you if you smile at it.

FRENCH DIALOG

Je souris, quelqu’un me met une baffe et dis : « SOURIS BORDEL, SINON LA VIE NE TE SOURIRA PAS ». Je souris à nouveau

TOUT VIENT À POINT À QUI SAIT ATTENDRE. = Everything comes to those who wait.

FRENCH DIALOG 6/2:

Je suis assise à attendre.

J’ATTENDS, TOUT VIENT À POINT À QUI SAIT ATTENDRE.

Lapse time… VOIX OFF : EUH, EXCUSEZ-MOI MAIS ON VA FERMER LE STUDIO LÀ, VA FALLOIR BOUGER… ALLEZ !

LE MONDE APPARTIENT À CEUX QUI SE LÈVENT TÔT. = Early bird catches the worm.

I won’t even try to illustrate that one. Mornings shouldn’t even exist in my opinion. Next !

LE HASARD FAIT BIEN LES CHOSES. = As luck would have it.

FRENCH DIALOG 

– OH WOUAH, UN TÉLÉPHONE PORTABLE ! JE VOULAIS JUSTEMENT CHANGER LE MIEN.

– EXCUSEZ-MOI, VOUS N’AURIEZ PAS VU UN PORTABLE AVEC UNE PROTECTION ROSE ?

– AH NON, DÉSOLÉE.

– MERDE ! J’ÉTAIS PERSUADÉE DE L’AVOIR LAISSÉ ICI.

IL N’Y A PAS DE HASARD. = Everything happens for a reason.

ALLEZ, UN PETIT DERNIER !

CELUI QUI VEUT RÉUSSIR TROUVE UN MOYEN, CELUI QUI NE VEUT RIEN FAIRE TROUVE UNE EXCUSE. = Whoever wants to succeed finds a way, whoever wants to do nothing, finds an excuse.

You think you can never learn French properly because you’re not naturally good at it, or maybe because you started learning it too late, or because you don’t know any French speakers, or because you can’t pay for a tutor? Cut the crap! Find solutions. The web is filled with solutions, people wanting to exchange French/English lessons, free Ohlala videos to learn French etc. etc. You know what I’m talking about… Food for thought…

I do hope these French sayings have made you feel good and positive! Now go spread the word : we, Frenchies are positive people. Grumpy and angry ? Absolutely not !

BISOUS ET À PLUS !
