    137. 137. CHINA • Jintao, Hu A beautiful bird is the only A book holds a kind we cage. house of gold. A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. 138
    138. 138. A bridle for the tongue is a necessary piece of furniture. A fall into a ditch makes you wiser. A country where flowers are priced so as to make them a luxury has yet to learn the first principles of civilization. A gem is not polished without rubbing, nor a man made perfect without trials. A dog in desperation will leap over a wall. A sly rabbit will have three openings to its den 139
    139. 139. A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion An inch of time is an inch of gold, but you can't buy that inch of time with an inch of gold. All cats love fish but fear to wet their paws Avoid suspicion: when you're walking through your neighbor's melon patch, don't tie your shoe An ambassador bears no blame Beat your gong and sell your candles. 140
    140. 140. Before you beat a dog, find out who its master is Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you will be like him yourself. Careless rat chewing on a cat's tail: beware lightning! Do not use a hatchet to remove a fly from your friend's forehead. Corner a dog in a dead-end street and it will turn and bite Don't stand by the water and long for fish; go home and weave a net 141
    141. 141. Don't waste too many stones on one bird He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever Everyone rakes the fire under his own pot He who can predict winning numbers should not set off fire crackers. Failing to plan is planning to fail. If you are patient in a moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow Fight fire with fire. In shallow holes moles make fools of dragons Great cry and little wool, as the fellow said when he sheared his hogs 142
    142. 142. Learning is treasure no thief can touch. Never write a letter while you are angry Life isn't all beer and skittles No mill, no meal. Looking for fish? Don't climb a tree One generation plants the trees, another gets the shade. Never write a letter while you are angry Only when all contribute their firewood can they build up a strong fire 143
    143. 143. Paper can't wrap up a fire So long as a man is angry he cannot be in the right Parents who are afraid to put their foot down usually have children who step on their toes Patience is a bitter plant, but it has sweet fruit. The emperor is rich, but he cannot buy one extra year. Raise your sail one foot and you get ten feet of wind. When you fall into a pit, you either die or get out. 144

    182. 182. • A blind man can see his mouth. A buckle is a great addition to an old shoe. A cabin with plenty of food is better than a hungry castle. A dimple in the chin; a devil within. A disease known is half cured. A dog with two homes is never any good. A fast is better than a bad meal. A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book. A good retreat is better than a bad stand. A good servant makes a good master. 183
    183. 183. • A hut is a palace to the poor man. A lock is better than suspicion. A man is often a bad adviser to himself and a good adviser to another. A narrow neck keeps the bottle from being emptied in one swig. A new broom sweeps clean, but an old broom knows the corners. A nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse. A nod's as good as a wink to a blind horse. A quarrel is like buttermilk: once it's out of the churn, the more you shake it, the more sour it grows. A quiet tongue shows a wise head. A scholar's ink lasts longer than a martyr's blood. 184
    184. 184. • A silent mouth is sweet to hear. A sly rogue is often in good dress. A small benefit obtained is better than a great one in expectation. A trade not properly learned is an enemy. A trout in the pot is better than a salmon in the sea. A true friend laughs at your stories even when they're not so good, and sympathizes with your troubles even when they're not so bad. A turkey never voted for an early Christmas. A Tyrone woman will never buy a rabbit without a head for fear it's a cat. An old broom knows the dirty corners best. 185
    185. 185. • Apelles was not a master painter the first day. Better be quarreling than lonesome. Better be safe than sorry. Better fifty enemies outside the house than one within. Better one good thing that is than two good things that were. Better one house spoiled than two. Beware of people who dislike cats. Continual cheerfulness is a sign of wisdom. Crafty advice is often got from a fool. 186
    186. 186. • . Don't give cherries to pigs or advice to fools. Drink is the curse of the land. It makes you fight with your neighbor. It makes you shoot at your landlord and it makes you miss him. Even a tin knocker will shine on a dirty floor. Even a worm will turn. Every Jack has his Jill. 187
    187. 187. 188
    188. 188. EGYPT • Mubarak, Muhammad Hosni Said 189
    189. 189. • A beautiful thing is never perfect. A man's ruin lies in his tongue. Be patient with a bad neighbor: he may move or face misfortune. Because we focused on the snake, we missed the scorpion. If there were no fault, there would be no pardon. . Pride goes before a fall. 190
    190. 190. 191
    191. 191. NICARAGUA • Ortega Saavedra, José Daniel 192
    192. 192. 193
    193. 193. ITALY • Giorgio Napolitano 194
    194. 194. • A bad agreement is better than a good lawsuit. A beetle is a beauty in the eyes of his mother. A bird in the cage is worth a hundred at large. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. A blind man is not judge of colors. A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle. A clear bargain, a dear friend. A cloak is not made for a single shower of rain. A closed mouth catches no flies. A cracked pot never fell off the hook. 195
    195. 195. • A dead man does not make war. A dog is never offended at being pelted with bones. A drop of water breaks a stone. A fat kitchen is next door to poverty. A fine shot never killed a bird. A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions. A fool finds pleasure in evil conduct, but a man of understanding delights in wisdom. A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control. A fool throws a stone into a well, and it requires a hundred wise men to get it out again. 196
    196. 196. • A fools knows his own business better than a wise man knows. A gift delayed, and long expected, is not given, but sold dear. A gift long expected is sold, not given. A gift long waited for is sold, not given. A gift with a kind countenance is a double present. A gold key opens every door. 197
    197. 197. • In the country of the blind the one eyed man is king. In war time there is pay for every horse. Injurious is the gift that takes away freedom. It is a bad game where nobody wins. It is a bad thing to be poor, and seem poor. It is a good answer which knows when to stop. It is a good file that cuts iron without making a noise. It is always good to have two strings to your bow. It is better to hear the nightingale sing than the mouse gnaw. It is better to irritate a dog than an old woman. It is better to leave than to lack. 198
    198. 198. 199
    199. 199. SWEDEN • Reinfeldt, John Fredrik THE ROYAL FAMILY OF SWEDEN 200
    200. 200. • A peacock has too little in its head, too much in its tail. Advice should be viewed from behind. Fear may force a man to cast beyond the moon. Sweep first before your own door, before you sweep the doorsteps of your neighbors. 201
    201. 201. • The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected. The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your own arm. Those who wish to sing always find a song. What breaks in a moment may take years to mend. What can you expect from a pig but a grunt? When the blind man carries the lame man, both go forward. Wisdom is in the head and not in the beard. Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow. Worrying never did anyone any good. 202
    202. 202. 203
    203. 203. HAITI • RENE GARCIA 204
    204. 204. • A stumble is not a fall. An empty sack cannot stand up. Beat the dog; wait for its master. Beyond the mountain is another mountain. Children aren't dogs; adults aren't gods. Children have wide ears and long tongues. Children learn to creep ere they can learn to go. If you want your eggs hatched, sit on them yourself. 205
    205. 205. • Poor people entertain with the heart. The crab that walks too far falls into the pot. When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends. 206

    239. 239. POLAND Lech Aleksander Kaczynski 240
    240. 240. • A guest sees more in an hour than the host in a year. A noisy cow gives little milk. All times are good when old. Do not push the river, it will flow by itself. Even a clock that does not work is right twice a day. Even the goats will jump on a slanted tree. Hunger will lead a fox out of the forest. Hungry bellies have no ears. 241
    241. 241. • Ink, if not used, will dry up. The doctor demands his fees whether he has killed the illness or the patient. The greater love is a mother's; then comes a dog's; then a sweetheart's. 242
    242. 242. • The greatest oaks have been little acorns. The woman cries before the wedding and the man after. 243

    244. 244. GERMANY Horst Köhler A close mouth and open eyes never did any one harm. 245
    245. 245. 246
    246. 246. BRAZIL • Lula da Silva, Luiz Inácio Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today. 247
    247. 247. 248
    248. 248. BOLIVIA • Juan Evo Morales Ayma 249

    251. 251. • A little fire burns up a great deal of corn. A rich man has no need of character. Admission by the defendant is worth a hundred witnesses. An advantage of poverty: your relatives gain nothing by your death. Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time. Eat vegetables and fear no creditors, rather than eat duck and hide. God did not create woman from man's head, that he should command her, nor from his feet, that she should be his slave, but rather from his side, that she should be near his heart. 252
    252. 252. • The kind man feeds his cat before sitting down to dinner. The more you add, the worse it gets. The place honors not the man; it is the man who honors the place. These three are the marks of a Jew--a tender heart, self- respect, and charity. Time heals old pain, while it creates new ones. Time is a great healer. Who seeks more than he needs hinders himself from enjoying what he has. 253
    253. 253. • Opinions founded on prejudice are always sustained with the greatest violence. Promise little and do much. Rivalry of scholars advances wisdom. Silence is a fence around wisdom. Teach thy tongue to say, "I do not know." 254
    254. 254. • If a word be worth one shekel, silence is worth two. Make not a fence more expensive or more important than the thing that is fenced. 255
    255. 255. 256
    256. 256. SPAIN • José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero 257
    257. 257. • A bad compromise is better than a successful suit. A bad day never hath a good night. A bad excuse is better than none. 258
    258. 258. 259
    259. 259. FRANCE • Sarkozy, Nicolas 260
    260. 260. • A bad compromise is better than a good lawsuit. A bad workman never finds a good tool. A beggar is never out of his road. A bellyful is a bellyful. A bellyful of gluttony will never study willingly. A blind hen can sometimes find her corn. A brain is worth little without a tongue. A cake and a bad custom ought to be broken. A cake eaten in peace, is worth two in trouble. 261
    261. 261. • A civil denial is better than a rude grant. A civil question deserves a civil answer. A clear conscience is a good pillow. A colt you may break, but an old horse you never can. A cow does not know what her tail is worth until she has lost it. A cow from afar gives plenty of milk. A crooked log makes a good fire. 262
    262. 262. • A dead man has neither relations nor friends. A dead mouse feels no cold. A dealer in onions is a good judge of scallions. A dog may look at a bishop. A door must either be open or shut. A drowning man clings to a blade of grass. A fair promise binds a fool. A favor ill placed is great waste. A fence between makes love more keen. A fine cage won't feed the bird. 263
    263. 263. • It is not enough to run; one must start in time. It is not the big oxen that do the best day's work. It is not the burden but the over-burden that kills the beast. It is only idle people who can find time for everything. It is only the bashful that lose. It is the master-wheel that makes the mill go round. It is the sauce that makes the fish edible. It is the tone that makes the music. It is too late for the bird to scream when it is caught. 264

    276. 276. 277
    277. 277. NETHERLANDS • Jan PJan Peter BALKENENDE 278
    278. 278. • A hundred bakers, a hundred millers, and a hundred tailors are three hundred thieves. 279

    284. 284. GREENLAND • YOU MAY HAVE HEARD ICELAND AND GREENLAND TRADED NAMES TO FOOL INVADERS –THAT IS NOT TRUE • YET IN ICELAND THERE ARE GREEN PLACES AND IN GREENLAND THERE IS PRETTY MUCH ICE 285
    285. 285. 286

    287. 287. 288
    288. 288. FINLAND • Tarja HALONEN The water is the same on both sides of the boat. 289
    289. 289. 290
    290. 290. DENMARK • Lars Lokke RASMUSSEN 291
    291. 291. • A bad hair cut is two people's shame. A bad horse eats as much as a good one. A bad tree does not yield good apples. A barren sow is never kind to pigs. A bird may be ever so small, it always seeks a nest of its own. A bird never flew on one wing. A blind pigeon may sometimes find a grain of wheat. A bold attempt is half success. A burnt child fears the fire, and a bitten child fears a dog. A child must creep until it learns to walk. A child's back must be bent early. 292
    292. 292. • Before a man learns to hang he is half dead. Better a little furniture than an empty house. Better a little in peace and with right, than much with anxiety and strife. Better a poor horse than an empty stall. Better a salt herring on your own table, than a fresh pike on another man's. Better an open enemy than a false friend. Better ask twice than lose your way once. Better half a loaf than none at all. Better in an old carriage than in a new ship. 293
    293. 293. • He that does not save pennies, will never have pounds. He that hides is no better than he that steals. He that inquires much, learns much. He that is once at sea, must either sail or sink. He that keeps out of harm's way will gather goodly riches. 294
    294. 294. • It needs but slight provocation to make the wolf devour the lamb. It takes a good many mice to kill a cat. "It will come back," said the man, when he gave his sow pork. Jest with your equals. Keep not two tongues in one mouth. Keep to the little ones, and the big ones will not bite you. Keep your mouth, and keep your friend. Keep your nose out of another's mess. Keep your nose to the grindstone. 295
