You need to work hard if you want to get something.
A kind word can melt a person’s heart.
Hard words break no bones.
A bird may be known by its song.
Poverty is in want of much, avarice of everything.
A fool and a baby tells the truth.
An empty head gets the easiest sleep.
The lord helps those who help themselves.
Do not cut the bough you are sitting on.
Draw not your bow till your arrow is fixed.
Everything that happens to you is a result of your own actions.
Fools may sometimes speak to the purpose.
When the rich make war it’s the poor that die.
The chain is no stronger than its weakest link.
A man is judged by his deeds, not by his words.
