Japanese Proverb #1

さるも き から おちる, saru mo ki kara ochiru. This means "Even monkeys fall out of trees." It means everyone, even experts, make mistakes. This is probably the most well known Japanese proverb to Americans, and has appeared in many movies. The one I remember most is The Hunted with Christopher Lambert. This is the answer to his question why a master ninja failed in killing him.
