Chi si loda si sbroda
Bragging excessively leads to losing something of yourself. The verb “sbrodolarsi”, means to let out the liquid just introduced (in this case broth – brodo) from your mouth. So you eat less, you lose strength and energy. You comes out dramatically diminished, in the eyes of those who listen, and therefore also in the intimacy of one’s conscience. Furthermore, having an excessive confidence in one’s own means can lead us inexorably to a resounding defeat. Give to ourself merits and virtues alone has the opposite effect. It is a mistake to consider oneself superior and underestimate the opponent. Most of the time a low profile is the best solution!
