The eyes have one language everywhere.
A bad workman quarrels with his tools.
A barber learns to shave by shaving fools.
A bean in liberty is better than a comfit in prison.
A blind man will not thank you for a looking glass.
A clear sky fears not the thunder.
A creaking door hangs long on its hinges.
A fair day in winter is the mother of a storm.
A foreigner scratches you where you do not itch.
A good bee will not go to a drooping flower.
A great ship asks for deep waters.
A second marriage is like a warmed-up meal.
A tent without a woman is like a violin with no strings.
A woman's tongue is a double edged knife.
Abundance, like want, ruins many.
Acorns were good till bread was found.
Adversity makes a man wise, not rich.
An ass is but an ass, though laden with gold.
Beauty without wisdom is like a flower in the mud.
Before you find God, you will be eaten by saints.
Before you make a friend, eat a bushel of salt with him.
