War makes thieves and peace hangs them.
Hours are Time's shafts, and one comes winged with death.
A bad reaper never gets a good sickle.
A bad wound may heal, but a bad name will kill.
A blind man needs no looking glass.
A day to come seems longer than a year that's gone.
A friend by thee is better than a brother far off.
A house without a dog, a cat, or a little child is a house without joy or laughter.
A hungry man smells meat far.
A man cannot wive and thrive the same year.
A nod's as good as a wink to a blind horse.
A rich man's wooing need seldom be a long one.
A slothful man is a beggar's brother.
A thread will tie an honest man better than a chain a rogue.
A wise lawyer never goes to law himself.
All that's said in the kitchen should not be told in the hall.
Any port in a storm.
Be happy while you're living, for you're a long time dead.
Be slow in choosing a friend but slower in changing him.
Better be ill spoken of by one before all than by all before one.
Better bend than break.
