Proverbs:
> Like the men of Ngesias, fussing about a thing lost.
The men of the Ngesias (Peleliu) village club were sitting near their clubhouse one evening when raiders broke through the brush, shouted wildly, and excaped with the head of one of them. When they recovered their senses, the men jumped to their spears and shouted threats into the darkness of the surrounding brush. Aroused by the commotion, the village chief appeared and ,when appraised of the situation, admonished them to be quiet since the fuss would gain nothing. "Don't cry over spilt milk."
> It's like when the men of Ngesias clamored over what they had lost (after a party of raiders had attacked without warning and taken a head as a trophy).
Don't cry over split milk.
> Sea crabs have pushed out land crabs.
Outsiders have taken over the land or titles of local people. An outsider (e.g., adopted child, friend) has become more important than a blood relative.

> Oh shucks, I just was beaten since I was caught.
> Lukes was sulking because they chewed all of her betelnut.
> I had a pet dog but he died.
> Have you all agreed what we will be doing tomorrow?
