    I wonder what materials you are using to study Japanese, but truly they are quite interesting. Obviously, proverbs can n’t be translated by understanding the meaning of each word (as they are very special), thus i suggest you translate the true meaning behind the whole sentence (figurative sense) i/o their literal sense 🙂
    Ex. #3 is very funny in English.
