- Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. মুকুট না আগুনের ডানা
- Things done by halves are never done right. অর্ধেক কাজ কোন কিছুই ভাল না
- A rolling stone gathers no moss. স্থিরমস্তিষ্ক না হইলে উন্নতি হয় না/ অস্থির ব্যক্তির প্রতিষ্ঠা বা অর্থসঞ্চয় হয় না;
- Danger often comes where danger is feared.যেখানে বাঘের ভয় সেখানে সন্ধ্যা হয়
- Let by gones be by gones গতস্য শোচনা নাস্তি
- The wearer best knows where the shoe pinches. যার জ্বালা সেই জানে
- When the dander is gone, God is forgotten কাজের সময় কাজী, কাজ ফুরালে পাজী;
- What cannot be cured must be endured. প্রতিকারের উপায় না থাকলে সহ্য করতেই হবে/
কপালের ভোগ ভুগতেই হবে;
