Meanings of "Sus Minervam docet"

Croatian

Ova prilično bezobrazna poslovica govori nam da ne nudimo savjet nekome tko ima više iskustva od nas. To bi samo bilo glupo kao svinja koja pokušava naučiti božicu Minervu čuvaricu umjetnosti i talenata.

This rather cheeky proverb tells us not offer advice to someone who has more experience than you – that would just be as foolish as a pig trying to teach the goddess Minerva guardian of the arts and talents.
