Patience is bitter, but it has a sweet fruit.
You talk sweet like the bulbul bird.
Who digs many wells doesn’t get sweet water in all of them.
The mouth cannot be sweetened by just saying “sweet.”
Hunger is never appeased with imaginary sweets.
Sweet to the taste, but bitter to pay for.
Sweet nature of a girl is better than a dowry.
Money is sweet balm.
Hunger makes hard beans sweet.
It is not every flower that smells sweet.
It is not by saying, ‘honey, honey,’ that sweetness comes into the mouth.
The beginning of sin is sweet; its end is bitter.
Sweet is the voice of the man who has wealth.
The wine is sweet, the paying bitter.
A black plum is as sweet as a white.
Stolen fruit is sweet.
A pig’s life, short and sweet.
He who eats bitter things gets sweet things too.
