Where I am from we have many common phrases and popular saying that we use often to criticize or describe something. Trying to adapt to life in the United States I researched some of the popular sayings that are used often. One that caught my attention was ” A Fool and His Money Are Soon Parted.” What does this mean? Yes, a fool is a person that acts unwisely or in other words a “silly” person, and parted means that it moved away from each other, but what do this two things have in common and what does it mean? I believe that someone acting foolish can easily lose his or her money through carelessness acts. The simplicity of the word choice is obvious, but the power it has when the words are together it makes its definition more meaningful.
