"The swiftest horse can not overtake a word once spoken"
"To build it took one hundred years ; to destroy it one day"
This proverb means that if you say a hurtful word then, there is nothing that you can do to take it back. I understand this a lot because i have said the most hurtful things to my family.
The proverb means that it takes forever to build up trust or love or anything to someone and only one day to mess that all up.I can connect this to me because i have messed up how close me and my sister were and i have also destroyed my moms trust with me and a lot of more mistakes.
