Think of many things, but do just one at a time.
An hour of play discovers more than a year of conversation.
The dog wags his tail, not for you, but for your bread.
Hell is paved with good intentions, and roofed with lost opportunities.
Not much can be done when everyone is giving orders.
Never cut what can be untied.
The person who is well prepared has already won half of the battle.
Visits always give a pleasure—if not the arriving, then the departing.
A good thing is known when it is lost.
If one loves the ugly, one shall find it beautiful.
A good cock was never fat.
A good thing is soon caught up.
