Chi dorme non piglia pesce?

“Chi dorme non piglia pesci.” — Italian proverb

S/he who sleeps does not catch fish.

My Italian professor for undergrad was a huge fan of that saying, usually after the class had failed a round of homework or quizzes.

It’s the Italian version of carpe diem. If you don’t do anything, you won’t accomplish anything, simple as that.
