      "Triesku v cudzom oku vidis~, ale brvno v svojom nevidis~"
      You can see a mote in another's eye, but you cannot see a beam in your own.


      "Tri z~eny, tri husi a tri z~aby * hotovy jarmok"
      Three women, three geese, and three frogs make a market.

      O.K., I'LL BITE: WHY FROGS?
      (Interesting to note that in all the other languages' versions of this idiom, there's no mention of frogs, only varying combinations of women and geese.)


      "Trpezlivost' ruz~e prinas~a"
      lit.: Patience brings roses.
      Patience is a flower that grows not in everyone's garden.
