He who is outside his door already has a hard part of his journey behind him.
When two quarrel, both are to blame.
A little pot boils easily.
He who undertakes too much seldom succeeds.
Council before action.
Whatever you advise, be as brief as possible.
We grow too soon old and too late smart
Anger is a short madness
He waits long that waits for another man's death
The generous man enriches himself by giving; the miser hoards himself poor
Honesty is the soul of business
Hunger is the best cook
Better lose the anchor than the whole ship
Men should be like coffee, hot sweet and strong
Prevention is better than cure.
