tutti i nodi

Tutti i nodi vengono al pettine.

"All the knots come to the comb."

Meaning sooner or later our misdeeds catch up with us and we have to face up to put-off difficulties.

Grammatically we see the irregular verb "venire" (to come) in action...

io vengo
tu vieni
lei viene
noi veniamo
voi venite
loro vengono

I heard this quote constantly from my Nonna, ITALIA. I find myself using it so often also with my children and grandchildren. It covers it all!.
