Estonian Love Proverbs

In honour of my anniversary with my beloved I wanted to compile a list of romantic Estonian proverbs but would you believe they are so hard to find! Estonians may not be known for their romantic qualities like the French or Italians are but of course there's passion inside us all! I'm definitely a romantic at heart and I know many fellow Estonians are too, judging from the success of Estonian poets such as Marie Under.

Unfortunately I did not achieve the list I was hoping for but here are three of the best Estonian love proverbs I could find.

1. Old love does not rust.

2. The mouth is the interpreter of the heart.

3. Happy the marriage where the husband is the head and the wife is the heart.
