Advising is often better than fighting.
All men are baked in the same clay.
All skill is in vain when an angel pees in the touchhole of your musket.
All the fruit is not found in just one field.
Always something new, seldom something good.
Ambition and fleas jump high.
An old broom knows the corners of the house.
An old error is always more popular than a new truth.
An old man loved is winter with flowers.
An ounce of a mother's wit is worth a pound of schoolgirl's wit.
As the old birds sing, so the young ones twitter.
Beard and cloak do not make one a philosopher.
Beauty is the eye's food but the soul's sorrow.
Before God and the bus driver we are all equal.
Begged bread has a hard crust.
Begin to weave and God will give the thread.
Better a friendly denial than unwilling compliance.
Better a friendly refusal than an unwilling promise.
Better a good conscience without wisdom than wisdom without a good conscience.
Better a good hanging than a bad marriage.
Better an empty purse than an empty head.
