EUROPEAN Portuguese Idioms! #23

I hope you guys appreciate these series of posts! I post one of these each week.

All Portuguese Idioms

Boa sorte!

Note: I am sorry to say that the end of these series is going to approach.
BUT In as a replacement, I want to do a different kind of weekly series. I don't have any ideas though. I would prefer to do something focused on the European version of Portuguese. If you have any fun ideas for me. Just tell me and you will be appreciated!

These Idioms are EUROPEAN Portuguese. Not Brazilian! However, some of these idioms might be used in both versions.

I think that portuguese slang would be very useful. I have enjoyed this series – I love proverbs and expressions.

Thank you for your contributions – they are much appreciated!

This idiom is incorrect. It should be instead "Deus dá nozes a quem não tem dentes" - God gives nuts to those without teeth

Could a sound bit be added to each of these so we can hear it as well?

Aqui no Brasil dizemos: Deus da asas para quem não sabe voar.
