Do not put your spoon into the pot which does not boil for you.
Eating and scratching want but a beginning.
Bold is thicker than water.
Better a mouse in the pot than no meat at all.
Adversity makes a man wise, not rich.
After a storm comes a calm!
An ass is but an ass, though laden with gold.
A barber learns to shave by shaving fools.
Abundance, like want, ruins many.
Don’t stretch yourself longer than your blanket.
