Never Lament the loss of what is not worth having

Never complain never explain

A persitent hammer will break most stones

The wages of sin are death

There is power in a name

Chastise those you would help but not those best left to their doom

The wise accept criticism and the foolish reject it

In the kingdom of the blind the one eyed man is king

Barking dogs rarely bite

He that would be his own master often has a fool for a student

A wise man tells less than he knows but a fool tells more than he knows

Better wisdom than wealth

Knowledge is a treasure but practise is the key to it

Those who sleep with dogs will rise with fleas

Silence is a sign of wisdom

If the coat be ever so fine that a fool wears it, it is still a fools coat

The least said, soonest mended

A cat may look at a king

Evil company makes the good bad and the bad worse

A drowning man will clutch at a straw

He who lives by the sword dies by the sword

Many a true word is spoken in jest

As you sow you will reap

Content turns all it touches to gold

The poor are seldom sick for want of food than the rich are for the excess of it

Better to go to sleep hungry than rise in debt

To understand a man look at the world when he was twenty

If we did not flatter oursselves the flattery of others would have no effect

Point not at the faults of others with a foul finger

A soft answer turneth away wrath

You may be as good as you please if you please to be good

Riches govern a fool

By their fruits ye shall know them

Walls have ears

Don't cast pearls before swine

A fool wears his inside out, helps no-one and pretends he knows everything.
