A bad neighbor will give you a needle with no thread.
A busy mother makes slothful daughters.
A contented ass enjoys a long life.
A girl, a vineyard and a beanfield are difficult to guard.
A loss not missed by your neighbor is not a real loss.
A rich widow weeps in one eye and laughs with the other.
A woman with two husbands cheats both.
An empty purse and a new house make a man wise, but too late.

Beauty is a good letter of introduction.
Better a red face than a black heart.

Beware of a man that does not talk and a dog that does not bark.
Beware of silent dogs and still waters.
Beware of the door with too many keys.
