A sleeping fox finds no meat.
A timely "no" beats a hasty "yes."
A wise man learns at the fool's expense.
An old man with a torn sleeve never dishonored anyone.
As long as I am running my father will still have a son.
At home saints never perform miracles.
Between the beginning and the end there is always a middle.
For every ailing foot, there is a slipper.
God is big, but the forest is bigger.
God writes straight even on wavy lines.
Goodwill makes the road shorter.
Haste is the mother of imperfection.
He who knows nothing, doubts nothing.
If it were ever to rain soup, the poor would only have forks.
In the house of a blacksmith the ornaments are made of wood.
Love is blind, so you have to feel your way.
Never promise a poor person, and never owe a rich one.
Poverty is not a crime, but it's better not to show it.
The earth is not thirsty for the blood of the warriors but for the sweat of man's labor.
The joy of a poor man does not last long.
The poor eat meat when they bite their tongues.
