A debt is always new.
A girl without a needle is like a cat without a claw.
A good deed bears interest.
A good deed is written on snow.
A much-used plow shines; stagnant waters stink.
Barking dogs don't catch hares.
Better a goat that can give milk than a cow that cannot.
Coal that does not burn gives little heat.
Do not choose your wife on your way to the church.
Earth is dearer than gold.
Give good and get good.
Happy the marriage where the husband is the head and the wife the heart.
If the bread in the oven is a failure you lose a week; if the harvest is a failure you lose a year; if marriage is a failure then you lose a life.
If you go only once round the room, you are wiser than he who sits still.
In a garment made of silk there are no fleas.
It is better to be without a wife for a minute than without tobacco for an hour.
Justice knows no friendship.
Little kettles soon boil over.
Manure is the farmer's gold.
Old love does not rust.
One cannot make soup out of beauty.
