Hello! There is an expression in India that roughly translates into "a virtuous woman never curses anyone and witch's curse never comes true". It is usually said as a retort to someone who insults you and showers you with ill wishes. I am curious if there is an English equivalent to this expression.

    Mmm ... not to my knowledge. But I'll welcome you with a childish comeback in the circumstances:

    I'm rubber and you're glue. Whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you.

    Welcome to the forum. :)

    And now we return to our regularly scheduled question: "I am curious if there is an English equivalent to this expression: a virtuous woman never curses anyone and witch's curse never comes true."

    Then the answer is probably that English does not have an equivalent.
