Esperanto Proverboj: Parto Unu

I thought I'd post some proverbs for everyone to learn. :)

1: Kia patro, tia filo.

English equivalent: Like father, like son.

2: Kiam nokto vualas, ĉiuj koloroj egalas.

Translation: When the veil of night falls, all colors are equal. English equivalent: All cats are grey in the dark.

3: Ne en unu tago elkreskis Kartago.

Translation: Carthage didn't raise up in only one day. Meaning: Large enterprises take time to build.
