From a fallen tree, all make kindling.
You can't have more bugs than a blanketful.
Don't offer me advice, give me money.
Drink nothing without seeing it; sign nothing without reading it.
Never advise anyone to go to war or to marry.
You can't ring the bells and, at the same time, walk in the procession.
If there's no bread, cakes are very good.
Life without a friend is death without a witness.
Flattery makes friends, truth enemies.
Friends and wine should be old.
It is better to weep with wise men than to laugh with fools.
Talking is easy, action difficult.
The greyhound that starts many hares kills none.
If you would be Pope, you must think of nothing else.
God delays, but doesn't forget.
Unshared joy is an unlighted candle.
Laws, like the spider's web, catch the fly and let the hawk go free.
Where there is love, there is pain.
Blue eyes say, "Love me or I die"; black eyes say, "Love me or I kill thee."
Woe to the house where the hen crows and the rooster keeps still.
