Wisdom in folklore language

In awe of perennial wisdom captured in folklore sayings. Romanian language mentions "Prezenta de spirit" - Presence of Spirit as a desirable and necessary strength. 
A common insult in Romania is "nesimtit" - one who doesn't feel, the socially clumsy oblivious person whose absent-mindedness hurts others.
Embodied awareness is recognized as a strength even in cultures who don't have a tradition of teaching it.
