Sayings

Kristof recently shared a couple Hungarian sayings with me on the AngolEst Post. “Bagoly mondja verébnek, hogy nagyfejű.” => “The owl says to the sparrow that he has a big head.” As Kris pointed out, a similar English expression would be: “It’s like the pot calling the kettle black.” => “Az edény hívja feketének a kannát”

Here’s a few more fun English sayings for our Hungarian friends (I wonder if there are similar Hungarian sayings?):

“A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.”

“Birds of a feather flock together.”

“The rolling stone gathers no moss.”

“All is fair in love and war.”

“Take it with a grain of salt.”

“There are plenty of fish in the sea.”

“Fish and guests stink after three days.”
