There is no good accord where every man would be a lord.
Men are not angels.
Anger is a short madness.
Beads about the neck and the devil in the heart.
Call the bear ‘uncle’ till you are safe across the bridge.
We soon believe what we desire.
A cracked bell can never sound well.
Children and fools tell the truth.
The nearer the church, the farther from God.
In the country of the blind the one-eyed man is king.
The eye lets in love.
Fields have eyes, woods have ears.
The master’s footsteps fatten the soil.
There is no going to heaven in a sedan.
Honey is sweet, but the bee stings.
It is not with saying honey, that sweetness will come into the mouth.
He that labours and thrives spins gold.
Man proposes, God disposes.
One and none is all one.
The pleasures of the mighty are the tears of the poor.
He that would learn to pray, let him go to sea.
The voice of the people is the voice of God.
Yesterday will not be called again.
