Govor; Hrabrost; Iskrenost; Iskustvo

GOVOR

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

HRABROST

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

ISKRENOST

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

ISKUSTVO

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