A back does not break from bending.
A beautiful thing is never perfect.
A blow to another's purse is like a blow to a mountain of sand.
A borrowed coat does not keep one warm.
A man with two ears can be supported by two words.
A person with a wound on his head keeps touching it.
A small house can lodge a hundred friends.
A woman will be twice bound when her chains feel comfortable.
An onion shared with a friend tastes like roast lamb.
Be patient with a bad neighbor: he may move or face misfortune.
Because we focused on the snake, we missed the scorpion.
Believe the liar up to the door of his house and no further than that.
Better half a donkey than half a camel.
Cover up the good you do -- do like the Nile and conceal your sources.
Everything is formed by habit, even praying.
False ambition serves the neck.
Follow the saint no further than his doorstep.
For the benefit of the flowers, we water the thorns, too.
Friendship doubles joy and halves grief.
He who chatters with you will chatter about you.
He who has a back is not beaten on the belly.
