An upstanding peasant is bigger than a nobleman on his knees.
A hard-working man is worth more than a crowd of loafers.
After the rain the grass will grow; after wine, conversation.
A bad reputation is seldom completely amiss.
A bashful dog rarely gets fat.
A bee does not touch a withered flower.
A bird in the hand is worth more than ten in the bush.
A brother's wrath is a devil's wrath.
Each one thinks much of his own wisdom; therefore the world is full of fools.
Kindness begets kindness.
The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.
What breaks in a moment may take years to mend.
Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow.
