Better a healthy donkey than a consumptive philosopher.
Better a mouse in the pot than no meat at all.
Better an egg today, than an ox tomorrow.
Better an ugly duckling from your own village than a beauty from foreign parts.
Call the bear uncle till you are safe across the bridge.
Complain about the house where the husband is the wife.
Do not cut the bough you are sitting on.
Do not put your spoon into the pot which does not boil for you.
Don't throw your blanket in the fire just because it has one flea in it.
Don't try to sell pumpkins to a gardener.
Eating and scratching want but a beginning.
Even in paradise it is no fun to be alone.
Even silence is an answer.
Every sin brings its punishment with it.
From the same wood you can make a cross or a club.
Gloves hide the ugliest hands.
He that never rode never fell.
He who is afraid of death, loses his life.
He who wants to talk with the dogs must learn to bark.
Hunger goes in a straight line, desire turns in circles.
If you are already wet, you won't care about the rain.
