What orators lack in depth they make up for in length.
Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.
Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.
It is better to be the hammer than the anvil.
It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
when you fall into a pit, you either die or get out.
No clock is more regular than the belly.
Between saying and doing, many a pair of shoes is worn out.
Every disadvantage has its advantage.
It is a double pleasure to deceive the deceiver.
If you wish to know the mind of a man, listen to his words.
Every cloud has a silver lining
The dogs may bark, but the caravan moves on
In times of trouble leniency becomes crime.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
What an elder sees sitting; the young can't see standing.
The eyes have one language everywhere.
Speak not of my debts unless you mean to pay them.
The buyer needs a hundred eyes, the seller not one.
The shortest answer is doing.
You often meet your fate on the road you take to avoid it.
