Pray to God but continue to row to the shore.
Don't buy the house, buy the neighborhood.
Shame is worse than death.
Make peace with man and war with your sins.
Clever father, clever daughter; clever mother, clever son.
A wooden bed is better than a golden coffin.
To keep a new friend, never break with the old.
Tell me who's your friend and I'll tell you who you are.
What men usually ask for when they pray to God is, that two and two may not make four.
You can't drive straight on a twisting lane.
Happiness is not a horse, you cannot harness it.
When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart.
