Table Of Contents

A man without a smiling face must not open a shop
Among the blind the one-eyed man is king
An empty vessel gives a greater sound than a full barrel
An hour in the morning is worth two in the evening
An old poacher makes the best keeper
An ounce of discretion is worth a pound of learning (wit)
By the street of 'by-and-bye' one arrives at the house of 'Never'
Dog does not eat dog
Dumb dogs are dangerous
Go to bed with the lamb and rise with the lark
Good fences make good neighbours
He gives twice who gives in a trice
He is a fool that forgets himself
He is a good friend that speaks well of us behind our backs
He is not fit to command others that cannot command himself
He is rich that has few needs
He laughs best who laughs last
He that has a full purse never wanted a friend
He that has no children knows not what love is
He that once deceives is ever suspected
He that promises too much means nothing
He that respects not is not respected
He that seeks trouble never misses
He who would catch fish must not mind getting wet
He who would search for pearls must dive below
Hew not too high lest the chips fall in thine eye
Know your own faults before you blame others for theirs
Make haste slowly
Make the best of a bad bargain
Man proposes but God disposes
Many a good father has but a bad son
Many a little makes a mickle
Many kiss the hand they wish to cut off
Many words hurt more than swords
Men are blind in their own cause
Men strain at gnats and swallow a camel
Money spent on the brain is never spent in vain
Money begets money
Money is a good servant but a bad master
Money matters
No great loss without some small gain
No man is content with his lot
No man can serve two masters
No man is indispensible
To carry coals to Newcastle
To fiddle while Rome is burning
Two blacks do not make a white
Two heads are better than one
We never know the value of water till the well is dry
When pigs fly
When the devil is blind
When the word is out it belongs to another
You cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear
