ENGLISH: EVERYTHING THAT HAS A FACE HAS A BACK HEAD

The overhead proverb looks at the existence of the face and the back head, both being parts of a human being. On the one hand, the face signifies the beginning of person or thing, and on the other hand, the back head signifies the end of a person or thing. Therefore, everything that has a face also has an end, that is, the back head. This also means that ‘everything that has a beginning has an end.’

The proverb relates to those who think that they will live on earth forever. Thus, when one of them passes on, these people get so devastated to an extent of even losing their own life as well, due to the shock. They forget that ‘everything that has a face has a back head.’

In addition, the proverb is also relates to people who experience both success and problems. Success could be in form of wealth, good health, employment, and so on. The proverb reminds them that everything that has a face also has a back head.

This enables people to solve their problems effectively, and to make the most out of their success, because everything that has a face has a back head.
