"The roots of "Ootame, vaatame" "Let s wait and see," are embedded in the deepest chasm of the Estonian psyche because, for a very long time, the people had little choice to do anything else. This philosophy is a close relation to the Spanish manana ("tomorrow"). The difference is that the languid Spanish are just deferring something. The pragmatic Estonians are not. They are waiting and seeing."A guide to understanding the Estonians which dispels or confirms preconceived prejudices with humor and insight."
