All things grow with time,
If you have nothing to lose,
you can try anything.
If a man is destined to drown,
he will drown even in a spoonful of water.
Talking comes by nature,
silence by wisdom.
A half-truth is a whole lie.
Measure the corn of others
with your own bushel.
Poverty is no disgrace,
but no honour either.
The truly rich are those who enjoy what they have.
If you can't go over, you must go under.
A guest is like rain: when he lingers on,
he becomes a nuisance.
Other people's troubles are bearable.
Not the mouse is the thief, but the hole in the wall.
The constant friend is never welcome.
The longer a blind man lives, the more he sees.
