    Un de ces quatre matin - French for "One of these days". Literally translated, it is more poetic: "One these four mornings". :)

    No quepo en mi de gran alegria - Spanish for "I'm bursting with happiness"--though the literal translation (like the French example that I previously posted) is more interesting (and fun): "I cannot fit inside of myself from great happiness"... :)
