Brazilian Colloquialisms, Sayings, and Slang #85



O que os olhos não veêm o coração não sente - What the eyes don’t see, the heart doesn’t feel

A Brazilian saying somewhere between “what she/he doesn’t know wont hurt her/him” and “out of sight, out of mind”, as it can be used both in reference to oneself or to someone else.

In Italian it’s literally the same! It goes:“Occhio non vede, cuore non duole”, that is “(if your) eye doesn’t see, (your) heart doesn’t hurt”
