      Don't know about the first one, but the second equals the English proverb,

      "One who's been bitten by a serpent, dreads a rope."

      Re: Translate Urdu Proverbs into English




      Actually, in terms of the lesson from the proverb, they both mean the same thing, but I was trying to find an English equivalent of the first one.

      Proverb -A burnt child dreads the fire.

      Chinese Version: One bitten by a snake for a snap dreads a rope for a decade.一朝被蛇咬,十年怕井绳

      Indian Version: The one burnt by hot milk drinks even cold buttermilk with precaution. Transliteration: Doodh ka jala chaanch ko bhi phook phook ke peeta hai.

      Meaning: Similar to this proverb "Once bitten, twice shy"

      This Proverb intimates, that it is natural for all living creatures, whether rational or irrational, to consult their own security, and self-preservation; and whether they act by instinct or reason, it still tends to some care of avoiding those things that have already done them an Injury. - Divers Proverbs, Nathan Bailey, 1721 [1]

      I yearn for an answer... can you help me?
      I'm drowning in a sea of abused visions and shattered dreams
      In somnolent illusion... I'm paralyzed
