A faltade pan, buenas son tortas.

11 Sep

A faltade pan, buenas son tortas.

If there’s no bread, cakes will do.

Whenever we are hungry or suffer misfortune, we should be content with whatever is offered and settle for the next best thing – ‘beggars can’t be choosers’.

Alternative versions of the proverb:

A faltade pan, galletas. If there’s no bread, have biscuits.

A falta de pan, las tortasson buenas. For lack of bread, the cakes are good.
