    "A picture is worth a thousand words" in Russian?

    Hello everybody.

    Can anyone translate the sentence "A picture is worth a thousand words" for me?
    Or is there some Russian saying which means more or less the same?

    I would like it translated in cyrillic, if possible.

    Thank you very much.

    Одна картинка стоит тысячи слов.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Hello,

    There is an exact Russian analog of this saying:

    Лучше 1 раз увидеть, чем 100 раз услышать.

    Luchshe 1 raz uvidet', chem 100 raz uslishat'.

    Literally: It's better to see something once, rather than to hear about it 100 times.

    And we usually write it in this way:
    Лучше один раз увидеть, чем сто раз услышать.

    Just wanted to reduce the quantity of foreign words for him wherever possible. I guess I shouldn't have though...
