Better an honest smack in the face than a false kiss.
Do not try to make yourself so big, you are not so small.
He who has no hand cannot clench his fist.
Love is a sweet dream, and marriage is the alarm clock.
Never kiss an ugly girl; she will tell everyone.
Poverty is no shame -- but is no great honor either.
The worst life is better than the best death.
You can't force anyone to love you or to lend you money.
