The knowledge of a trade is worth a handful of gold.
He that has gold may buy land.
Poor men are fain of little thing.
Better be idle than ill doing.
He is wise, that is ware in time.
Better half an egg than empty shells.
A misty morning may be a clear day.
In a good time I speak it, in a better I leave it.
He who hath gold hath fear, and he who hath none has sorrow.
A man at forty is either a fool or a physician.
Better a poor horse than no horse at all.
Fast bind, fast find.
It is good to be out of harms gate.
Too much familiarity breeds contempt.
Soon gotten, soon spent.
When love cools faults are seen.
Youth never casts for peril.
Anything for a quiet life.
Better be the lucky man than the lucky man’s son.
Need makes a man of craft.
