A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom.
Poetry is a way of taking life by the throat.
Think like a wise man but communicate in the language of the people.
Ребенок в доме - это источник радости - A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure
A drop of water — as light as air.
Уютно, словно клопу в ковре - As snug as a bug in a rug
What is patriotism but the love of the food one ate as a child?
A sense of humor is a major defense against minor troubles.
