He who does not have a good head on their shoulders better have a good pair of legs

Posted by D. Skliris on May 15, 2006

My parents, immigrants to this country from Europe, would say the following phrase.
"He who does not have a good head on their shoulders better have a good pair of legs, because they are going to do alot of walking."
What country did this originate from? Is it Greek? Swedish? or from somewhere else?
