A poor beauty finds more lovers than husbands.
Don't dig your grave with your knife and fork.
Many a true word is spoken in jest.
Poverty is not a shame, but the being ashamed of it is.
A good beginning makes a good end.
Fools build houses, and wise men buy them.
Sometimes you must be cruel to be kind.
Ask God for what man can give, and you may get it.
A blind man will not thank you for a looking-glass.
He is a fool that kisseth the maid when he may kiss the mistress.
A young man idle, an old man needy.
A full cup must be carried steadily.
