Katya's Proverb Lessons
Katya surprised us while we were out hunting for mushrooms. Unimpressed by Natalia's impatience, she started spouting Russian proverbs...
Без труда не вынуть и рыбки из пруда.
No pain, no gain.
(Without effort you can't get fish from the pond.)
Закончи дело, гуляай смело.
Work before play.
(Finish the job and then have fun).
За двумя зайцами погонишься, ни одного не поймаешь.
Grasp all, lose all.
(If you go after two rabbits, you won't catch a single one.)
