"bahala na" - (tagalog) it's untranslatable to english, but it means something like: don't worry about the future.... whatever will be, will be. /// one of my favourite dutch sayings is "Zoals de waard is, vertrouwt hij zijn gasten" - 'like the innkeeper is, so he trusts his guests"

Wat niet weet, wat niet deert. (Unknown things don't harm people. - Usually said by someone who knows something 'bad' about something, but refrains from telling about it, because it doesn't seem important, it might be okay again by itself or it's best to not let that person in on the secret for it's own well-being.)
