You don't wash blood away with blood but with water.
One armpit cannot hold two watermelons.
One who does not slap his children, will slap his knees. (Parents that do not discipline their children early on, will beat themselves later on when they learn the bad things their grown children have done.)
Sighs never fall on the ground.
The bride who brings a golden throne will sit on it herself.
The fish stinks from the head.
The ink of the scholar is more precious than the blood of martyrs.
The priest does not eat pilav every day.
The tool makes the hand proud.
There is no royal road to learning.
Things that are weak will break -- as men do who think they are strong.
