2. zavodila - Russian - Someone is said to be a ‘zavodila’ if they can motivate everyone around them to do something, without blackmail or aggression, but through pure goodwill, confidence and by setting an example. A ‘zavodila’ can incite both positive and negative behaviour.

A nice thing to say in another language

1. Mensch - Yiddish for "a person of integrity and honor." The highest compliment you can give a person.
2. zavodila - Russian - Someone is said to be a ‘zavodila’ if they can motivate everyone around them to do something, without blackmail or aggression, but through pure goodwill, confidence and by setting an example. A ‘zavodila’ can incite both positive and negative behaviour.
3. À raconter ses maux, souvent on les soulage - A problem shared is a problem halved (French)
