If you call one wolf, you invite the pack.
If you cannot serve, you cannot rule.
If you go to sleep with the blind, you'll wake up squinting.
If you have no enemies think then that your own mother might have produced one.
If you let everyone walk over you, you become a carpet.
If you light one candle for God, then you must light two for the devil.
If you want apples, you have to shake the trees.
If you want to annoy the devil stay silent.
If you want to drown yourself, don't torture yourself with shallow water.
If you wish to drown, do not torture yourself with shallow water.
If you would live long, open your heart.
Let the man who has suffered ask it -- not the man who has travelled.
Life is a ladder -- some will climb up it, others down.
Mother Nature, time and patience are the three best doctors.
Nature, time, and patience are the three great physicians.
New day -- new destiny.
No hero without a wound.
One does not get crucified, one crucifies oneself.
One gentle word opens a gate of iron.
Only other people's eggs are double-yolked.
Pretty wife, old wine -- many friends.
