Popular Wisdom

I want to dedicate this post to some of my favorites everyday expressions that shows "popular wisdom" and, I'll try to translate them into English! Maybe, just maybe one day I'll learn all their English versions, or will create ones ( I'm all ready working on it!)

- Mas sabe el diablo por viejo que por diablo: More knows the devil for old, than for devil

- Estamos cagados y con el agua lejos: We have shit on our pants and the water is way to far!

- Mas feo que pegarle a la mamá: That is uglier than hitting your mom!

- Cria cuervos y te sacaran los ojos: Raised crows and they will put your eyes out.

- Tras de goda, hinchada: Not only fat, but swollen

More to come but in the mean time, feel free to add some of yours on the comments!
