Proverbs are like butterflies, some are caught, some fly away
Los refranes son como las mariposas, hay los que se cogen y los que se vuelan
Os provérbios são como as borboletas, alguns se apanham, outros não
Les proverbes ressemblent aux papillons; on en attrape quelques-uns, les autres s'envolent
I proverbi sono come le farfalle, alcuni sono presi, altri volano via
Proverbele sunt ca fluturii, unele se pot prinde, altele nu
a Spreekwoorden zijn als vlinders; sommige worden gevangen, andere vliegen weg
ger Sprichwörter sind Schmetterlinge, einige werden gefangen, andere fliegen fort
