Proverbs and sayings about bread

You won’t surprise anyone with bread now. On the shelves you can find a variety of pastries – for every taste and budget. Although, just recently, peasants worked day and night in the field, growing wheat, and considered bread to be wealth (“bread is the head of everything”, “bread is on the table, and the table is the throne,” “you won’t be full without bread”). Whether the rain beat the wheat, the sunburned, the birds pecked, the concern for the harvest worried the villagers all year round.

The bread was delivered by hard, daily labor – hence the reverent, respectful attitude to it: “Bread is the breadwinner”, “Bread in a man is a warrior”. Empty bins were considered a terrible disaster: “You’ll pierce yourself without a mind, but you won’t live without bread”, “There is no bread – put your teeth on the shelf.”

In no case was it possible to throw out an undernourished pink salmon – this was considered a great sin. Popular wisdom teaches: “Threw bread, then – lost family well-being and strength.”

How the year will be, hungry or full, was judged just by how much it was possible to collect and thresh the grains. After all, it was believed that if there is no bread, then any food will not be satisfying: “Bitter lunch without bread.”

For centuries, people have been making proverbs and sayings about bread, thereby glorifying and emphasizing its symbolism: “head”, “father”, “gift of God”, “breadwinner” – such epithets characterized the main product in folk art on every table.

Bread in Russian proverbs and sayings symbolizes purity of soul, hospitality and prosperity. Not for nothing that long since long-awaited guests and newlyweds were greeted with loaf and salt. And now, in most families, bread is considered the main component of the dining table.
