Fear the goat from the front, the horse from the rear, and man from all sides.
Every seed knows its time.
Every sandpiper praises his own swamp.
Every road has two directions.
Every peasant is proud of the pond in his village because from it he measures the sea.
Eternal peace lasts only until the next war.
Eat what is cooked; listen to what is said.
Don't put it in my ear, but in my hand.
Do not make an elephant out of a fly.
Deprive a mirror of its silver and even the czar won't see his face.
Cut down the tree that you are able to.
Curious Varvara's nose was torn off.
Cry and the whole world cries with you.
Confide a secret to a dumb man and he will speak.
Chickens are counted in autumn.
Better a dove on the plate than a woodgrouse in the mating place.
Beat your own and others will fear you.
Ask a lot, but take what is offered.
