Never give advice unless asked.
One must either be the hammer or the anvil.
Always something new, seldom something good.
He who undertakes to be his own teacher has a fool for a pupil.
An old man loved is winter with flowers.
Fair flowers are not left standing along the wayside long.
When fortune knocks open the door.
The morning hour has gold in its mouth.
Mules are always boasting that their ancestors were horses.
In bad fortune hold out, in good hold in.
Nothing is as new as something which as been long forgotten.
