Let me fly away, [SIC]

I love the English translations I see living here.  Getting a notebook last week to use for taking notes in class provided some fun and cheap entertainment as I shopped for just the right one.  To let you in on the fun of shopping I jotted down some notebook covers for you.  I copied them exactly as I read them, taking care to follow the capitalization, punctuation & line spacing.  Which one would you pick?

Seeing Is Believing
Don’t trust someone tells you.
Only you can trust is your eyes.
but magic is the exception.

With the character
of color,
plus your thinking
and creative,
open sky.

You’re one of a kind!
These are the hands that drop your trust

Study Planner
Hold fast to dreams
For it dreams die
Life is a broken winged
bird That cannot fly.

What Does Little Birdie Say,
In her nest at peep of day?
Let me fly, says little birdie,
Mother, let me fly away,

    Yep, we need to fly to where we are led. The one who knows us best, loves us best, leads. We just need to watch where he leads. As a mother I am excited when my little ones learn to fly, I want that with all my heart. But it is still hard to let them go when I know there are struggles and pain ahead. So I rejoice that all that is part of life, too. And we all grow stronger. Soaring is awesome. This is the one I would pick. Mom

  4. This brings back memories of many childhood Summers spent in Seoul, Korea. It was the ’80s and S. Korea was well on its path from war-torn to 1st-world nation. I would read smatterings of English everywhere, because it was very trendy/modern to have English on products or advertisements. The translations were just like these, awkward but O’so funny. Thanks for the little pick-me-up Ami.

    At first I thought it was YOUR poor translating skills, until I realized they were in English. Very funny! And you made a good choice.
