Default Sayings and proverbs

The most dangerous food is wedding cake.

If you find your friend on the sofa at home with your wife, you had better sell the sofa.

The reverse side also has a reverse side.

If women were really good, God would be married.

Love is like butter -- it's good with bread.

A man comes from the dust and in the dust he will end--and in the meantime it is good to drink a sip of vodka.

If I am a gentleman and you are a gentleman, who will milk the cow?

You cannot write down a meaningful silence.

If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a closed room with a mosquito.

A pessimist, confronted with two bad choices, chooses both.

Always tell the truth in the form of a joke.

When you reach the top, keep climbing.

He who seeks revenge should remember to dig two graves.

Though I might have the other view around for a few of them yet they display a good array of meaning and essence of many people's experiences.

Thank you Sevana. Here is more.


Pissing in your shoes won't keep your feet warm for long.

Love your neighbor, even if he plays the trombone.

Nothing wipes your tears away but your own hand.

When we are at our happiest, then it is best to leave and go home.

The hunter who always comes home with meat is a thief.

Let no one look into your heart or into your purse.

The blind person never fears ghosts.

Even the one-eyed man winks to women.

giving credit where credit is due.

Thanks, Alice in the Wonderland!

Let me add this on I just read in another forum:

My dear Sevana, the link published by Alice lands on a site in Russian, and there we are both lost...

Got some revision, instead of “always tell the truth in the form of joke” why not make it “mockery always told in a form of joke” (that’s what I observed on people around me...LOL).
