C'est la fin des haricots ! - That's the last straw!

Comme un diable dans l'eau bénite - Like a cat on a hot tin roof

Il faut casser le noyau pour avoir l'amande - No pain no gain

La bave du crapaud n'atteint pas la blanche colombe - Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me
