    Better one-eyed than stone-blind.

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to share with me your opinion concerning the following proverbs?

    In the kingdom of the blind the one eyed man is king.
    Better one-eyed than stone-blind.

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Re: Better one-eyed than stone-blind.

    that's an old saying:(!)

    In the land (or country) of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.
