Can we get a list of some of the good ones?  Russian? proverbs are at least as fantastic as old english ones, and in many cases better.

I'm sure I'm overgeneralising in a horribly racist way here - but deep sarcasm and disenchantment seem wonderfully prevalent.  --Vitenka

MoonShadow tends to think of them as situations occur, but will try to oblige.

[A website with some listed] - particularly blunt ones too:
If the pocket is empty, the judge is deaf.
If you don't deceive, you can't sell.




"The church is near, but the road is icy.  The pub is far, but I will walk carefully."
I've not heard that one before. - MoonShadow
I probably horribly misquoted it.  --Vitenka

"Если нельзя, но очень хочется, то можно."
"If it's forbidden, but you ReallyReallyWantTo, it's allowed."

"Whatever you feed a wolf, it will always look to the forest."




Bulgarian, so maybe should not in be here, but I like it anyway:

"It is a foolish woman who blames her cabbages."

--Jumlian

Hey! It was their fault. -- Xarak
