A fool is a wise man's ladder.
Abundance does not spread; famine does.
Almost is not eaten.
As great birds die the eggs rot.
Before you milk a cow tie it up.
Behold the iguana puffing itself out to make itself a man!
Even the maid has a family.
He who has no intelligence is happy with it.
He! He! He! You begin with the meal before the water is boiling!
Hope does not kill; I shall live in hope of getting what I seek another day.
If he keeps on imitating everybody the monkey will one day cut his own throat.
If you are looking for a fly in your food it means that you are full.
If your buttocks burn, you know you have done wrong.
No hill without gravestones, no valley without shadows.
No man can perfectly empty a pot with a ladle.
No stake ever grew old with the bark on.
Old age does not announce itself.
Plenty sits still, hunger is a wanderer.
The fool who owns an ox is seldom recognized as a fool.
The hand that rocks the cradle rules the nation and its destiny.
The heart is like a goat that has to be tied up.
