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.
The calmest husbands make the stormiest wives.
You must not expect old heads upon young shoulders.
Sorrow for a husband is like a pain in the elbow, sharp and short.
Be not deceived with the first appearance of things, for show is not substance.
The first faults are theirs that commit them, the second theirs that permit them.
An idle brain is the devil's workshop.
No barber shaves so close but another finds his work.
