"There's always a few bad seeds in a pickle" - Erpheronian country noble's expression, used to refer to the fact that in any mix of people one will find those of virtuous and of corrupt character alike  (ref. Letters of Clissa!)

"A regular Brandivere!"  - Used mostly in New Santhala, this comment has one of two meanings, which must be discerned in context; either the person referred to is very generous with his/her time and money, or with intimate favours...  (derived from the well-known mage Dalmac Brandivere, who resided for nearly a decade in the New Santhalan outskirts)

"Keep the toads in the bucket..." - a Manthrian proverb used to warn someone about gossip or the necessity for secrecy on a particular issue.  

"Drelldung!"  - a vulgar expletive popular with young blades of central Sarvonia, who believe it to be translated from the Thergerim.  

"As wise as Federkiel" - an old comparative expression which has been around as long as the Federkiel family, though the current holder of the title, Sage Artimidor, has done much to bolster its contemporary validity...

"If ink were drink, I'd be a scholar!" - hobbit saying, self-explanatory.  Used when someone voices what is considered an improbable or self-indulgent wish.
