Gifts should be handed, not thrown
Better no law than law not enforced
If you have no money, be polite.
Relatives are the worst friends, said the fox as the dogs took after him
Speech is oft repented, silence never
Shared sorrow is half sorrow
He who is afraid of asking is ashamed of learning.
Who takes the child by the hand takes the mother by the heart
It is better to suffer for truth than to prosper by falsehood
A bad tree does not yield good apples
Don't sail out farther than you can row back
