Thai-to-English Translation

šҧª š˹ҵ¡͹ = [derived from a Thai film with the same name] The dull die fast; the smart die slow.

ǵͧҹ = Never do things by halves.

ѹա = Prevention is better than cure.

ҽ٧ ˧ҽ٧˧ = Birds of a feather flock together.

駡ͧ = Set a beggar on horseback and he'll ride to the devil.

Թ͡ = Play second fiddle. To have to be satisfied with the crumbs from a rich man's table.

Թ = Keep something for a rainy day.

Թٹ͹ͧ = Conscience does make cowards of us all.

عҹ = Take care of the pence, and the pounds will take care of themselves.

ᡧ״֧س = We only appreciate the worth of salt when the soup is tasteless. You never miss the water till the well runs dry. The worth of a thing is best known by the want of it, or, as Madonna sang in her song One More Chance: "You don't know what you've got till it's gone."

Т = Fine feathers make fine birds. The tailor makes the man.

ŵ = Long absent, soon forgotten. Out of sight, out of mind.
