When ambition ends, happiness begins.
He is rich who owes nothing.
A bashful beggar has an empty wallet.
A flatterer is a secret enemy.
A loan, though old, is not a gift.
A prudent man does not make the goat his gardener.
Adam ate the apple, and our teeth still ache.
An old spinster is not worth more than an unposted letter.
An ox remains an ox, even if driven to Vienna.
Bargain like a gypsy, but pay like a gentleman.
Beloved children have many names.
Better dry bread in peacetime than meat in wartime.
Blushing is the paint of good habits.
Come a little closer when your sword is too short.
Even the white lily casts a shadow.
He who accepts the gift loses his liberty.
He who is feared by many must be afraid of many.
He who is struck by the lightning doesn't hear the thunder.
He who slowly gets angry will stay angry for a long time.
He who trusts is happy; the doubter is wise.
He who wants to go fishing must not be afraid of the water.
