Προπαντός εάν ο στόχος σας είναι το μέτωπό του.

Ακόμα το στόμα του γάλα μυρίζει
(roughly, "his mouth still smells milk")
Said for people who are very young, inexperienced in life

Βρήκε ο Φίλιππος το Ναθαναήλ
("Philip found Nathaniel")
Said for two people who are very good friends

Γαῖα πυρί μιχθήτω
(an ancient Greek saying still used; roughly "let earth and fire mix")
It means that nothing really matters, even disasters, after one’s gone 
Ἄνωθεν οἱ Προφῆται. Ἦχος Βαρύς.

Δεν έμεινε λίθος επί λίθου
(The phrase is taken from Matt. 24:2, There shall not be left here one stone upon another)
Said for major disasters

Δεν έμεινε ρουθούνι
(roughly, "not even a nostril has been left")
Said in major natural disasters or wars, when a large number of people or other living creatures have perished. In the major Byzantine-Arab conflict of 11th c, Byzantine historian George Cedrenus describes how after a victorious battle for the Byzantines, general Georgios Maniaces ordered his troops to cut off the ears and noses from the Arab dead and send them to Constantinople as a gift for the Emperor. In Byzantine Greek: "τὰς ῥῖνας καὶ τὰ ὦτα τῶν πεσόντων ἀποτεμὼν" ("he cut off the noses and ears of the fallen")

Η γλώσσα του/της στάζει μέλι
(roughly "from his/her tongue flows honey")
Said for someone who speaks well for other people; taken from Homers Iliad 1:249 ("Then Nestor stood up, clear, sweet orator from Pylos. Sweeter than honey the words flowed from his tongue")
