Are you referring to proverbs?
I don't know if you are but... sharing some Dutch sayings/idioms might be fun. :)
There is a Dutch expression that goes like:
"Nu komt de aap uit de mouw."
Literally this means: "Now the monkey comes out of the sleeve."
Dutch people have used this expression in international conversations, simply translating it literally, and it always raises confusion. What this expression actually means is that it suddenly becomes clear what is going on, or what has been going on, or that someone's real character or intentions suddenly become clear.

I'm always on watch for opportunities to use them on the Dutch natives around here :)
