ΠΙΝΑΞ Ο ΕΚΤΟΣ ΚΑΙ ΕΙΚΟΣΤΟΣ (μέρος τὸ ἕτερον)

Some idioms and proverbs (cont.)

He’s falling into the trap. A transenna turdus lumbricum petit. Εἰς τὴν παγίδα ἐμπίπτει. Εἰς παγίδας ἐμπλέκεται.

He is stunned, embarrassed, dumbfounded. Haeret illi aqua. Stupet. Κωφᾶται. Ἀποσιωπᾷ.

You rub salt in the wound. You poke a hornet’s nest. Obductam refricas cicatricem. Τὰς σφηκιὰς ἐρεθίζεις.

The speech (talk) makes no sense whatsoever. Nec pes nec caput sermonis apparet. Ἀκέφαλος μῦθος.

That thing is warmed over. It’s the same old news. Eandem recoquit crambem. Crambe repetita. Ταὐτὸ ᾆσμα ᾄδει.

Things are going very well. In vado res est. Res calet. Καλῶς προχωρεῖ τὸ πρᾶγμα.

Everything turns out just fine for him. He couldn’t ask for better. Laureum gestat baculum. Δαφνίνην φορεῖ βακτηρίαν.

Nothing be beyond measure. Don’t carry things to an extreme. Ne quid nimis. Μηδὲν ἄγαν.

One hand washes the other one. Manus manum lavat. Ἡ χεὶρ τὴν χεῖρα νίζει.

As you sow, so shall you reap. Ut sementem feceris, ita et metes. Ὅ ἂν σπείρῃς, τοῦτο καὶ θερίσεις.

Everyone looks after themselves. Tibi metis. Σοὶ θερίζεις.

Birds of a feather flock together. Pares cum paribus facillime congregantur. Ἧλιξ ἥλικα τέρπει. Ὅμοιος ὁμοίῳ.

The fox changes his fur, but not his habits. The leopard cannot change its spots. Vulpes pilum mutat, non mores. Ὁ λύκος τὴν τρίχα, οὐ τὴν γνώμην ἀλλάττει.

He who chases two rabbits catches none. Qui duos insectatur lepores, neutrum capit. Ὁ δύο πτῶκας διώκων, οὐδέτερον καταλαμβάνει.



Opus hoc Franmorarius (Francisco Morales Ardaya) recensuit et emendavit et ei varia addidit, anno aerae communis bismillesimo decimo tertio.

Τοῦτο τὸ ἔργον Φρανμοράριος (Φραγκίσκος Μοράλης Ἀρδαίας) ἐξήτασε τε καὶ διώρθωσε καὶ πρὸς τοῦτο ποικίλα προσέθηκε, τῷ δισχιλιοστῷ καὶ τρίτῳ καὶ δεκάτῳ ἔτει τῆς κοινῆς ἐποχῆς.
Hominibus totam versandam constat esse bibliothecam, ut solam utilem scribere sententiam possint.
