At the super market today, I was waiting in the express lane when they opened a new register. I let the old-timer behind me go first in the new line. He said, "you're a nice man". I said thank you, and told him I wasn't in a hurry. He said, " In Portuguese, there is an expression for people like you...." "Devegar, se vai longe". Which I took to mean, "Slowly, one goes far." Anybody got some other Portuguese expressions?
