A stumble may prevent a fall.
He that seeks trouble never misses.
A hero is a man who is afraid to run away.
Who is so deaf or so blind as he that willfully will neither hear nor see?
It takes all sorts to make a world.
A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner.
Never step over one duty to perform another.
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
Some men go through a forest and see no firewood.
Sell not virtue to purchase wealth.
The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune.
A burnt child dreads the fire.
