A bad workman blames his tools = *A bad harpy blames her talons*

The ball is in your court = *The meal is in your hand*

Barking dogs seldom bite = *Noisy meal seldom harm*

A bellyful of food is a good one <- I guess leave it alone is ok

Bloom where you are planted <- I guess Dryad often use this phrase to encourage their friends?

The customer is always right = A predator is always right

Does a One Legged Duck swim in circles? = *Does Crisis eat human?* (said when someone ask a silly question and the answer is always "Yes")

Don't bite off more than you can chew =* Don't swallow more than you can eat*

Don't bite the hand that feeds you = *Don't eat the one who helps you* (said when a predators got help from a prey)

Don't cry over spilt milk = Don't cry over a runaway prey.

Don't enter your nose in the affairs of other = Don't stick your tail on the meal of other ("tail" can be replaced with roots, wings... depend on what race the talker is)

Don't make a mountain out of a molehill = Don't make a Dridder out of a spider (or whatever race out of its smaller unintelligent version)

Don't put the cart before the horse = Don't swallow before eating

Don't take life too seriously; you'll never get out of it alive <- Somewhat fit the theme of Felarya, I think

Release a meal to catch a bigger meal (Well, I made it up, lol XD)

Ability can help you survive, but character will keep you alive.
Ability can take you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.

All Nekos love fish but hate to get their hands wet.
All cats love fish but hate to get their paws wet.

All roads lead to a predator's stomach.
All roads lead to Rome.

All that glisters is not Ascarlin.
All that glisters is not gold.

All prey come to predators who wait.
All good things come to those who wait.

Barking up the wrong Dryad.
Barking up the wrong tree.

A bellyfull is one of people, drink, and sorrow.
A bellyfull is one of meat, drink, and sorrow.

Harpies of a feather flock together.
Birds of a feather flock together.

Harpies will be harpies.
Boys will be boys.

A closed mouth swallows no humans.
A closed mouth catches no flies.

Digested if you do, digested if you don't.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Do it today, tomorrow you may be digested.
Do it today, tomorrow it may be against the law.

Don't cross Anko's Bridge until you come to it.
Don't cross a bridge until you come to it.

Don't raise more Succubi than you can lay down.
Don't raise more Demons than you can lay down.

The pred is nude though the clothing cost a penny. (or many pennies XD)
The dog is nude though the clothing cost a penny.

The early Harpy catches the human. But the second Naga will catch the neko.
The early bird catches the worm. But the second mouse gets the cheese.

Every Dryad has it's thorn.
Every rose has it's thorn.

Failure is the first step to getting eaten.
Failure is the first step to success.

Fifty percent of a human is better than one hundred percent of nothing.
Fifty percent of something is better than one hundred percent of nothing.

A fool and his Ascarlin are soon parted.
A fool and his money are soon parted.

Give a Neko a bad name and he'll live up to it.
Give a dog a bad name and he'll live up to it.

Give a Dryad a match and she will be warm for a moment. Light a Dryad on fire and she will be warm for the rest of her life.
Give a man a match, he shall be warm for a moment. Light a man on fire and he shall be warm for the rest of his life.

Give people a common predator and hopefully they will work together.
Give people a common enemy and hopefully they will work together.

Good Neko needs no bush.
Good wine needs no bush.

Hell hath no fury like a predator scorned.
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Life is just a bowl of Nekos.
Life is just a bowl of cherries.

Ascarlin is the root of all evil.
Money is the root of all evil.

Two more proverbs...

Eating two preys in one bite. -> Equivalent to "killing two birds with one stone". Razz

A poor fairy hunter always blames his net. -> "A poor workman always blames his tools", Felaryan style.

The early bird catches the worm. But the second mouse gets the cheese
The early Harpy catches the human. But the second Naga gets the neko

Education is a progressive discovering of our own ignorance <W. Durrant>
Exploring Felarya is a progressive discovering of our own ignorance

Effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference!
Meal is important, but knowing where to get meal makes all the difference!

An empty vessel makes the most noise
An empty stomach makes the most noise

The enemy of my enemy is my friend
The predator of my predator is my friend
The prey of my prey is my meal

A fool and his money are soon parted
A fool and his life are soon parted

All flowers are not in Kryromia fields.
All flowers are not in one garden.

Every Inu has its day.
Every dog has its day.

Nagas take care of drunks.
God takes care of drunks.

Great dryads from little seeds grow.
Great oaks from little acorns grow.

"There's a spell for that." -- The equivalent advertisement to "There's an app for that." NOTE: typically follows a question like, "Got a glowbug on hour head?"

__ is a real lone kensha (lone wolf).

All the world is a dinner platter (all the world is a stage).

If it's too good to be true, it's an illusion.

Fortune favors the bold, but fortune only goes so far.

Luck is a fickle mistress. I rely more on my gun.

Don't shoot until you can see the pit of their maw (white of their eyes).

Mob, buffet, it's all about perspective.

Organization makes an army, disorganization makes a feast.

Well, dangle me by the leg and make me dinner (bend me over and fuck me in the ass [a statement of extreme discontent and sarcasm]).

Oh, eat me! (fuck me! [a statement of frustration, as to claim you are being fucked over])

A brave man seeks adventure, but often finds death.

Sleep tight, don't let the nemesis bite (don't let the bedbugs bite).

Superior firepower guarantees you success, superior guile guarantees you survival.

Got only one for now:

"A Kensha Beast in Echydin's clothing." -> I know Echydins aren't sheep at all, but couldn't find another thing to dress a Kensha Beast as. xD And yes, it's the usual "a wolf in sheep's clothing", when something seems (and might be) wrong.

Scratch that, I've just remembered Echydins are nearly as dangerous as Kensha. xD

Once in a three moons.
Once in a blue moon. The wiki said that there are three moons that exist in Felarya one of which has a chunk of it "bitten" off.

Either in the section about were-creatures and the various moon phases... and I think someone, can't remember who, wrote about how their character saw said moon. Highly unlikely that its canon, but I still wrote.
