Prošlost; Stid; Kajanje; Praštanje

PROŠLOST

  • Što pođe niz vodu, ne vrnu se uz vodu. # Water always flows down, not up.
  • Što je bilo, bilo je. # Let the dead bury their dead.
  • Pomenulo se, ne povratilo se. # It’s dead and buried. * God forbid it should happen again.
  • Istorija se ponavlja. # History repeats itself.
  • Bolje je da si bio nekad nešto, nego nikad ništa. # It is better to be a has-been than a never-was.

STID

  • Niko nikoga ne može osramotiti, dok se sam ne osramoti. # No one can disgrace us but ourselves.
  • Ko izgubi sram ljudski, izgubi i strah božiji. # He who has no shame before the world, has no fear before God.

KAJANJE

  • Kasno Janko na Kosovo stiže. # It’s too late to shut the stable door after the horse has bolted.
  • Koje se staklo jedan put razbije, ono se više ne sastavi. # What’s done cannot be undone. * Scrambled eggs cannot be unscrambled. * A broken egg cannot be put back together.
  • Bolje se i od po puta vratiti, nego rđavim putem do kraja ići. # Better be safe than sorry.

PRAŠTANJE

  • Ko priznaje, pola mu se prašta. # A fault confessed is half forgiven.
  • Treba oprostiti i zaboraviti. # Forgive and forget.
  • Oprosti nam grehove naše, kao što mi opraštamo dužnicima svojim. (Oče naš) # Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. (Lord’s Prayer)
