Tuwim, Julian

  • A flea--an insect which has gone to the dogs.

  • A horse has four legs. One at each corner.

  • A new sickness--medalomania.

  • A pessimist says all women are loose. An optimist does not, but he has hopes.

  • A virtuous girl never chases after boys; who ever saw a mousetrap chasing mice?

  • Conscience: that quiet voice which whispers that someone is watching.

  • Corpus delicti--a delicious body.

  • Do not desire your neighbor's wife in vain.

  • Egoist is someone who cares more for himself than me.

  • Even the most beautiful legs end somewhere.

  • Fidelity--a strong itch with a prohibition to scratch.

  • In partibus infidelium--she is unfaithful but only partly.

  • Life--a lifelong death sentence.

  • Raisin--a worried grape.

  • Success--something your friends will never forgive you for.

  • The difference between camels and men; a camel can work a week and not drink; a man can drink a week and not work.

  • Throw a lucky man into water and he'll surface with a fish in his mouth.

  • Tragedy--to fall in love with a face, and marry the whole woman.
