    I'm looking for phrases that talk about how life has its good points and bad points. I know יום אסל יום בסל but that's not really Hebrew. Anything slightly related would be interesting, thanks.

    Simply: בחיים יש עליות ומורדות.
    In some cases you could use 'קהלת פרק ג (the third chapter in Ecclesiastes) with its famous "a time to be born and a time to die", etc.

    Hebrew


    החיים/בחיים יודעים עליות ומורדות

    (בחיים) פעם אתה למעלה, פעם אתה למטה
