Was Hänschen nicht lernt, lernt Hans nimmermehr

         Proverb: You can’t teach an old dog new tricks


This proverb literally translates as ‘what little Hans doesn’t learn, [adult] Hans never ever learns”, and actually means that you learn better in youth than in old age. The implication is: if you do not learn something when you are young, then you will never learn it.
