Thanks to David P. from Buenos Aires...
Children's love is like water in a basket.
If you have a tail of straw, then keep away from the fire.
A dog that barks all the time gets little attention.
A learned man is twice born.
No woman can make a wise man out of a fool, but every woman can change a wise man into a fool.
It's not the fault of the pig, but of the one who scratches his back.
It's not the gay coat that makes the gentleman.
It's not the heat, it's the humidity.
A man was sleeping under a pear tree, when suddenly a snake came. A pear fell waking him. He killed the snake and ate the pear.
The one who loves you will make you weep.
A good friend is better than a near relation.
A false friend's tongue is sharper than a knife.
Abundance breeds arrogance.
Dress the monkey in silk and it is still a monkey.
