A borrowed mule soon gets a bad back.
A strong chicken starts to crow the moment that it comes out of the shell.
Be not water, taking the tint of all colors.
Even a soft speech has its own poison.
In every village there is a path that leads to the mill.
It is cruelty to the innocent not to punish the guilty.
When the wolf invites you in, you had better take your dog.
Where many cocks are crowing it's dawn.
