Your dog wishes you a long life.
Your body belongs to the Tsar, your soul to God, and your back to the squire.
You would do better to sit on a powder keg than on the knee of a woman.
You must chop down the tree that gives too much or too little shade.
You may call me even a pot, just don't put me into the oven.
You know a bird from the way he flies.
You get to really know your friend when trouble comes.
You don't milk a cow with your hands in your pockets.
You don't learn anything from buying, but you do from selling.
