A stone from the hand of a friend is an apple.
Before one cooks, one must have the meat.
He who begins a conversation, does not foresee the end.
He who has no spoon will burn his hands.
He whose clothes are too fine, shall go about in rags.
If you watch your pot, your food will not burn.
It is only the water that is spilled; the bowl is not broken!
Not all the tree's blossoms will bear fruit.
One must talk little, and listen a lot.
Open your mouth before you eat.
Too large a morsel chokes the child.
