976. Where are they? (The English version of this saying is usually, "Where are they now?" A fuller formof the Latin phrase is ubi sunt qui ante nos fuerunt?, "where are those who were before us?" You can read more about this phrase at wikipedia.)


977. The homeland is where things are good. (Compare this variant form: lIllic enim patria est, ubi tibi sit bene, "for in that place your homeland is, where things might go well for you.")


978. There bees where there is honey. (If you apply this metaphorically, you can think about how it takes bees to make honey, so you might be prepared to get stung!)


979. There is honey where there are bees. (If you take this metaphorically, you can see that although bees have their drawbacks, they are the source, the only source, for honey.)
