Friendship should be unpicked, not rent.
He who denies all confesses all.
He who begins many things, finishes but few.
He who climbs to high is near a fall.
Good repute is like the cypress: once cut, it never puts forth leaf again.
He who begins ill finishes worse.
A starved town is soon forced to surrender.
Absence is a foe to love; away from the eyes, away from the heart.
A secret imparted is no longer a secret.
A woman who loves to be at the window is like a bunch of grapes on the wayside.
A traveler may lie with authority.
A rotting fish begins to stink at the head.
A word to the wise is enough.
A true friend, is one that will take a bullet for you in the war.
After shaving there is nothing to shear.
A runaway horse punishes himself.
A tree often transplanted is never loaded with fruit.
A misfortune and a friar seldom go alone.
After the storm ends, the sun will shine.
A waiting appetite kindles many a spite.
