The boot and bast sandal do not make a pair.

 

You cant put the wolves in with the sheep.

 

Listen to the master - he will drive you in a tomb.

 

Who does not listen to the master, that listens to a whip.

 

The master is sleeping - the forest is growing.

 

Far away from the bear - far away from his claws.

 

The dog does not protect the sausage.

 

The rich removes the skin from the poor man, the poor man - from a potato.

 

The poor has many children, the rich has many cows.

 


Where there is a trough, there will be pigs also.

 

There would be a crack, and the bug will be

 

The wolf does not ask the shepherd, whether it is possible to catch the sheep.

Those are right who have money.

 

Where money speak, the truth is silent

 

The gold key opens all doors.

 

If there are no apples we will overeat with carrot.

 

With famine and the bug is meat.

 

Even the devil will dance for money.

 

Money do not stink.

 

If  a purse is empty, then the wit is not rich as well.

 

You will achieve nothing in life with an empty pocket.

 

How much money, so much happiness.

 

Those who have money, have the pleasure.

 


Truth is good but happiness is better. 

 

From work he has not become rich, but has become humpbacked.

 

You do one work, but another is in mind.

 

That the master will tell, the laborer will dance

 

The master chatters, the laborer nods

 

Work as much as you can, eat as much as they will give.

 

The more strongly you are whipped, the faster you run.

 

The more you plough, the thinner is the porridge.

 

Work is not a hare, it will not jump away in a field.

 

If the porridge is in the belly, then it is evening.

 

A good whip is necessary for a good work.

 

A good horse dies in thills.

 

The whip helps to run faster even to a horse.

 

As to eat, everybody is ready, as to work, there are nobody.

 

That the mouth receives, is paid by the back.

 

The lower we bow, more often we are whipped.

 

The harder labor, the sweeter bread.

 

Who bends, that does not break

 

Which horsy drags, that is driven on.

 

Which horsy drags, that has a heavier loaded cart.

 

Who willingly carries, that willingly is loaded.

 

On the small horsy everyone strives to get.


Saw and saw, but fasten a knot!

 

Plough up, the brother, the tillage, furrow it by the end!

 

Still waters run deep
