Tutti i nodi vengono al pettine

In English this Italian idiom translates as “chickens always come home to roost” or “your sins will find you out”. The literal translation “all knots come to the comb”! In Italian un nodo is a knot and un pettine is a comb. Just learned this proverb today and I think it’s a good one! New vocabulary for me as well!
