Do not be in a hurry to tie what you cannot untie.

Never fall out with your bread and butter.
Don't dig your grave with your own knife and fork.
Spread the table and contention will cease.
He that lives in a glass house must not throw stones.

The absent are always in the wrong
In time of prosperity friends will be plenty; In time of adversity not one in twenty
