A custom wears a shirt of iron.
A good neighbor increases the value of your property.
A sweaty foot seldom comes alone.
Against the beastly human being even the gods are powerless.
All rivers do their best for the sea.
As long as a language lives, the people will not perish.
Better a lie which heals than a truth which wounds.
Better to have a handful of might than a sack of justice.
Choose your woman with a velvet glove, but control her with a fist of iron.
Consider each day of your life to be the best.
Do not blow in the bear's ear.
Do not buy with your ears but with your eyes.
Do not choose your wife at a dance, but in the field among the harvesters.
Do not protect yourself by a fence, but rather by your friends.
Do not protect yourself with a fence, but rather by your friends.
Don't be a lion in your own house.
Don't jump high in a room with a low ceiling.
Doubts mean losing half of one's case beforehand.
Even in hell it is good to have friends.
Even in the tiniest little chapel there are some prayers said once a year.
Extol the virtue of water, but drink wine.
