(Idea taken from 'Grease' is the word...)
In Spanish these expressions are known as 'dichos', whereas in English you can refer to them as 'Sayings' or 'Idioms' '. Other interesting ones, to my liking, could be:
'Easy come, easy go'; 'Kindness costs nothing'; 'What goes around, comes around'; 'Lovers come and go, but true friends are forever';
'It takes guts to keep one's feet on the ground'; 'Try never to bite the hand that feeds you'... and my very, very favourite 'Never judge a book by its cover' (or, as it is also today said, 'by its movie'). And in a similar line of idea (ja, ja)... 'Never judge a lady by her lover'.
Do you have a favourite saying of your own? It would be really great to receive your suggestions. Much obliged!!!
