    Она сильно плачет if it's in the present tense.

    Thanks, Ljosha. Don't even know why I used past here. I guess it's поспешишь - людей насмешишь.

    Thank you very much! Could I also say, "Она крепко плачет", Or is that wrong?

    Heh, I'm going to put this into my Russian tidbits bag. I've already got "Это сильнее Фауста Гете", "Короче, Склифосовский", "Для тех, кто в танке", "Хотели как лучше, а получилось как всегда"...

    But that is actually an old proverb, not just a quote.
    Хорошо не просто там где нас нет, а там где нас никогда и не было.

    Heh, that's OK, there are no rules for what goes into my Russian tidbits bag. It's a little bit like a clipboard. You save interesting things you like onto there and when you see an opportunity to use them, you whip it out. Is "dlja tex, kto v tanke" a quote?

    I don't know, but it doesn't really sound like an old saying

    I always thought крепкий was mainly for taste like food, beer, cigarettes. No?

    I think that's wrong.

    Usually the saying "more haste less seed" is considered to be it's English equivalent, but of course some meaning is lost.

    For me the word itself mostly associates with the meaning "tight", other meanings I percept as idiomatic. One can have "крепкое здоровье", it could be "крепкий мороз" in winter, one can "крепко спать", "крепко любить", "крепко целовать" (there's a joking letter ending: целую крепко, твоя репка).
