Sayings and Proverbs of the Dutch

Hoge bomen vangen veel wind.
High trees catch a lot of wind.

Gebraden duiven vliegen niet.
Roasted doves don't fly.

Lengte zegt niets.
Length doesn't mean anything.

Men kan van een kale kip geen veren plukken.
One can not pluck a plucked chicken.

This is a Scottish saying I found , but I only have the translation.

He that talks to himself, speaks to a fool.
