Naked truth

Naked Truth

A thousand men can’t undress a naked man.

~Greek proverb

Inspiration by efisoul63 via


Since I am a layman,apologies for my ignorance. I am not sure what

exactly the proverb trying to convey .I request learned members to

enlighten me .

Don’t you agree that proverbs give us that extra knowledge and wonderful wisdom ??

Or you think proverbs are nothing but impossibilities or sometimes even absurdities,outdated sometimes contradictory … in context of modern word’s thinking prowess ?

I was not getting a proper and quick answer for the above proverb from the internet search and finally I was successful and  I felt one answer applies perfectly.

It means that honesty has no shame and nothing to hide

    Undress isn’t a problem when you’re clothed, and redress isn’t a problem when you’re healthy.

    But yeah, trying to undress the undressed would be as pointless as trying to cure health.

  6. Proverbs can sometimes state the obvious. I like this one. Other time proverbs can get you thinking in a way that you normally wouldn’t. I see his one as to mean that you can’t take more away from a person when you have already stripped them. No matter how many more people or things you use. Once he’s nude or naked, that’s it.
