Sokrates, you're good at this sort of stuff; Any real historical Polish proverbs come to mind?

maybe not a proverb but a saying : z gory ci za to dziekuje - i thank you from the top of the mountain.

I heard this one from a Polish/Finnish American;
"Women have a less accurate measure of time than men: there's a clock in Adam, none in Eve."

What's his name again?lol

Would you believe...........(ta da)..........."Banacek"

i don't think i've even watched this?

You must look to your right more often. There you will find solace, and Banacek.

He played a Polish American?

Yes, but he is a very good actor; Once, he played the part of a Nigerian Pygmy although he walked on his knees a lot in that film. He was never able to properly genuflect again but that's another story..........

The ones I remember my Polish grandparents saying are:
He who lends to a friend makes an enemy
The rich man has only two holes in his nose, the same as the poor man
The mistakes of the doctor are covered by the earth
Listen much and speak little
No fish without bones
Girl who fly upside down will have crack up

I know most of them except for the second and the last one. At least nothing comes to my mind. :)

Bogacz ma tylko dwie dziurki w nosie jak i ubogi

Listen much and speak little

Mowa jest srebrem, a milczenie złotem

@Ziemowit
Never heard the first one. The second is reallly well known - just didn't think of it reading the paraphrased English version.
