A quien madruga, Dios le ayuda

A quien madruga, Dios le ayuda

Significa: Quien se levanta temprano tendrá más oportunidades o por lo menos será la primera elección de las oportunidades.

Another alternative for this saying is “Al que madruga, Dios le ayuda.”

Vocabulary

madrugar = to get up early
ayudar = to help
Dios = God
quien = who

Literally translated means: Who gets up early, God helps (him).

A couple of English versions of this are:

  • God helps those who help themselves.
  • The early bird gets the worm.

Means: Some things are not what they appear to be. Something may appear perfect and beautiful but that perfection is only appearance and the reality may be different and no so beautiful.
