Wisdom devil other langs

Posted by Rafa lesp on September 06, 2003

Hi,

Can I ask if there are any other languages which have the expression (literally translated from Spanish):

"The devil knows more by being old than by being a devil"

In being used fairly often on the Madrid streets these days. I ask because it does seem uniquely clever and universal, characteristics which should elevate it to multilanguage status.
