Raz na wozie...
I've been trying to think of an English language equivalent. One site offers, "Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,"but that doesn't quite do it. The Polish Wikipedia site gives us the French: "un jour c'est blanc, un jour c'est noir," but this loses the connection to travel and its unique travails and tortures. I hate to think the best we can do are the 1971 Jerry Reed song, "When you're hot, you're hot/When you're not, you're not" or the Grateful Dead's "When life seems like easy street/There is danger at your door." That song also came from 1971--what was it about that year?
