Sight before hearsay.
Fish and guests smell at three days old.
Faint hearts never win fair ladies.
The nobler the blood the less the pride.
Eggs and oaths are easily broken.
Wise men do not quarrel with each other.
Many have too much, but none enough.
Big words seldom accompany good deeds.
Unwilling service earns no thanks.
Unworthy offspring brag the most about their worthy descendants.
Slander expires at a good woman's door.
Better to ask twice than to lose your way once.
