Where the river makes a sound, you can be sure it's carrying water.
The rat that knows but one hole is soon caught by the cat.
There's no better mirror than an old friend.
Truth suffers but never perishes.
The right time to dine is: for the rich man, when he is hungry; and for the poor, when he has something to eat.
There's no better sauce than a good appetite.
We are all made of the same clay, but not from the same mold.
The road to hell is strewn with roses.
There's no reason to walk on the branches when the trunk is so thick.
We may be all made of the same clay but not cut of the same cloth.
The seagull thinks it is an act of kindness to give the fish a lift in the air.
There's no worse deaf man than the man who doesn't want to listen.
We were born to die anyhow.
The sun is the blanket of the poor.
Those who rescue are always crucified.
We?re all made of the same clay, but not cut of the same cloth.
The lap of its owner is security enough for a cat.
The throat must pay for what the tongue may say.
Though a cage may be made of gold, it is still a cage.
What you don't see can't hurt you.
The lazy is a brother of the beggar.
The tongue slow and the eyes quick.
Though the cage be made of gold, it's still a prison.
When hunger comes through the door, love jumps out the window.
The lazy work twice as much.
