U sceccu porta sempri u barduni
A donkey always carries the load.
Yet another folk saying to do with the humble donkey, a symbol of hard work and stubbornness.
Simply put, a jackass will always be an ass.
Hummmm, a leopard doesn’t change its spots, simply doesn’t have the same directness does it!?!?
For the record a ‘barduni’ is a type of saddle especially made for donkeys to carry heavy weight and keep the animal from being distracted as they apparently can be quite feisty and single minded.
