Russian proverbs and sayings about work.

Ты работа нас не бойся мы тебя не тронем.
You work of us be not afraid we of you we shall not touch.

Если хочешь поработать , ляг , поспи и всё пройдёт.
If you want to work, ляг, have a sleep also all will pass.


Работа не волк - в лес не убежит .
Work not the wolf - in a wood will not escape.

So idlers speak.

Пиво без водки - деньги на ветер .
Beer without vodka - money for a wind.

Russian laugh at itself.

The Frenchmen work to receive glory
Englishmen work to receive many money.
Germans work to make most better.
And only Russian does not know for what works.
