Bontimpu e malutimpu
Un dura tuttu u timpu
Neither good weather
Nor bad weather lasts forever.
It means that all horrible situations eventually come to an end.
Quartara iaccata un si rumpi mai
A damaged amphora never breaks
It means that sometimes an old person with aches lives longer than a young person who looks healthy.
God helps cheerful people
It means that good or bad mood attracts good or bad luck.
