A dog doesn't like bananas, but he can't bear to think that chickens eat them.
Breasts are never too heavy for the chest.
Chickens can't speak well of their own soup.
If an ox doesn't know the size of his arse he won't eat an apricot stone.
If you are born fat you will not die thin.
Not everybody who wears spurs is a jockey.
The blow is taken on the nose but it's the eyes that cry.
The good dog never gets a good bone.
The sheep drinks but it's the goat that gets drunk.
Thieves don't like to see their comrades carrying the bags.
When you bump into someone, begging your pardon doesn't put it right.
Where there is a bone, there are dogs.
You jump up, but you come down all the same.
