It might be just one sentence. But they’re sentences that have impacted our lives.
So, we have a few lines to share. And though the content in this post might be short, it doesn’t mean it’s less important. To the contrary.
Below are some things grandmothers of BCP team members shared with us:
My grandmother has a line, “Kill them with kindness.” When someone is not nice to you, be extra nice. It’s the best thing she ever taught me. -Leah
My husband’s grandmother had a sentence she always used to say, “צום נישט רעדן קומט עס נישט.” Literally, it means it doesn’t get close to not speaking, but the literal translation doesn’t capture the meaning. More clearly, it means–you can never take words back. Silence is always best. You don’t always have to talk. -Renee
My husband’s grandmother had great lines, including “koza אויף צוריק גייט א.” “A goat goes backwards.” Koza is goat in Polish. The deeper meaning is to move forward and look ahead. No regrets and thoughts of could’ve would’ve and should’ve. -Tzila (BCP Production Admin)
“You should smile more often. You’re much prettier when you smile,” my grandmother told me one day. It sounds so simple but that one line changed everything. First, who wouldn’t want to be prettier? But that’s just on the surface. Being a person who smiles made me who I am. -Victoria
