Speech; Courage; Honesty; Experience

SPEECH

  • The bird is known by his note, the man by his words. # Čovek se po besedi poznaje.
  • Score twice before you cut once. # Dvaput meri, jedanput seci.
  • First think and then speak. * Look before you leap. Hear twice before you speak once. # Ispeci pa reci.
  • Actions speak louder than words. # Jače je delo nego beseda.
  • The tongue breaks bone, and herself has none. # Jezik može gore poseći nego mač.
  • Speak of the devil (and he always appears). # Mi o vuku a vuk na vrata.
  • His bark is worse than his bite. # Pas koji laje ne ujeda.
  • The tongue of idle person is never still. # Trla baba lan da joj prođe dan.

COURAGE

  • Fortune favours the bold. # Hrabre sreća prati.
  • Adversity is the touchstone of virtue. * Calamity is the touchstone of a brave mind. * Prosperity makes friends, adversity tries them. # Na muci se poznaju junaci.
  • No guts, no glory. # Slava pripada hrabrima.

HONESTY

  • What the heart thinks, the tongue speaks. # Što mu je na srcu, to i na jeziku.
  • Speech is the picture of the mind. # Što na umu, to na drumu.

EXPERIENCE

  • Seeing is believing. * Believe nothing of what you hear, and only half of what you see. # Što čuješ, ne veruj; što vidiš, to veruj.
  • He that does ill once, will do it again. # Ko te jednom ćuši, drugi put će te kocem udariti.
  • Birds once snared fear all bushes. # Koga je zmija ujela i guštera se boji.
