On a long journey, even a straw weighs heavy.
One man's meat is another man's poison
Paid workmen have no arms.
One ass among many monkeys is grinned at by all.
One man's punishment is a deterrent to many.
Painted flowers have no scent.
One bee is better than a thousand flies.
One should eat sand rather than fall to villainy.
Paper and ink and little justice.
One cannot blow and swallow at the same time.
One starts the game and another bags it.
Patched trousers, healthy testicles.
One cannot learn to swim in a field.
One stroke on the nail and a hundred on the horseshoe.
Pay me back what you owe me; we'll talk later about what I owe you.
One can't ring the bells and walk in the procession.
One swallow does not make a summer.
Pay not attention to the loud talk of a drunk.
One chooses one's friends, but family is from birth.
One trick is met by another.
Peace and patience, and death with penitence.
One drink is just right; two is too many; three are too few.
One wedding brings another.
People are the architects of their own fortune.
One eye on the frying-pan and the other on the cat.
