I would quote myself with the "When whispers you hear, you have a reason for fear" for the Forest of Whispers, but if it was declined before... oh well, I'm repeating it. Razz

The tree larger than the forest is the gateway to Hell. (Especially if you're a Neko.)

The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing, and then eat him.
The trouble with some woman is that they get all excited about nothing, and then marry him

Her heart is as rock as the great rocky fields. (or as cold as the imoreith tundra)

Your logic is as messy as the Great Marsh.

Vore means never having to say you're sorry.

My beloved is only water, which is always flowing, and doesn't deceive, which is always flowing, and doesn't change, which is always flowing, and doesn't end

The rhyme is nice I think but it's maybe too specific ? coming into a conversation it's not obvious it's about the forest of whisper ^^;

Yeah, I gotta agree, this is spot on. Made me lol like a madman.

Anyway, I thought this one up a while ago:

You were the one who then proposed to make proverbs on places, so... Razz Anyway, if it isn't there because it's way too specific, that's enough reason for not being there. Wink

Also, I need to think of more, but I guess I'm running out of proverb juice. >_<

I know what you mean, I didn't realize this thread was up until a day after, and when I looked at the stuff posted most of the things I've already thought of had been used already. >_<

Trees are more than meets the eyes; they can carry a lot. (How a tree can be a Dryad or how there can be more than one predator in its branch. So in short, be on your toes in the forest.)

Discolored? Disclosed! (How strange and odd-looking discolorations in some areas are usually a bad sign)

Light at the end of the tunnel may be a poisoned gift. (Just because you got out of a bad situation doesn't mean you're safe.)

Even at the top, danger persists. (You are never safe, not even after accomplishing your goal)

When in doubt, set something on fire. (If you're in a pinch, try starting a forest fire to take the predator down with you, or at least a last laugh.)

Ur-Sagol wasn't built in a day...but it was destroyed in one night! (A warning that good things take time and effort...and then not to be overconfident about achieving your goal. Could use rewording possibly, but it came to me rather suddenly)

Thought I'd just point out that the full quote for the woman scorned is actually this:

The Mourning Bride wrote:

"Heaven hath no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor Hell a fury like a woman scorned."


"Hang on, hang on! I'm coming! Don't get your wings in a jam!"


"No use crying over broken wings."


"He who lives by the sword shall die by the stomach."


"Everything comes to the [predator] who waits." (Replace predator with Dryads and/or Dridders?)


"Don't put the cart in front of the centaur!"


"He who sleeps forgets his hunger... until tomorrow."


"He who hesitates is food."


-----
Not modified but useful:



"Health is better than wealth." (Not heeded often in Felarya)


"Even a broken clock is right twice a day."


"First come, first served." (C'mon, this one deserves to be like on signs exiting cities or as graffiti.... like on a sign with a naga right as you exit the portals or something. "Welcome to Felarya! First come, first served!")

Out with the old, in with the prey.

Her heart's as dark as the evernight forest.

Figured this would work for Nagas and Mermaids.

Here's one. ^.^

"When a harpy talks, everyone hears them."

There could also be a new term from that, too. Very Happy "Harpy-talk", the Felarya equivalent to "sailor-talk."

Here's a few.

Even the largest fairy can be caught by her wings. (even seemingly invincible people have a weakness)

There's someone out there for everyone's stomach.

Theres more than one way to catch a Neko.

Take every tree for a dryad. (assume the worst)

A fat man chased by a naga is faster than a sprinter chased by a slug-girl (pressure can boost performance)

The tastiest prey is the one who runs fastest (a challenging task makes the satisfaction of completing it even greater)

Too many nekos spoil the stomach (too much of a good thing, though I'm not sure Crisis would agree Wink )

"Somehwere out there there's a gullet with your name on it." Thanks for the criticism. This one sounds good, but I kinda liked my old one better. Seemed more original.
