If the young only knew; if the old only could.
Wait until it is night before saying that it has been a fine day.
Better the foot slip than the tongue.
From word to deed is a great space.
Greedy eaters dig their graves with their teeth.
Everything passes, everything breaks, everything wearies.
He that seeks trouble never misses.
Honey is sweet but bees sting.
If you want the truth, ask a child.
Adversity is the touchstone of friendship.
A crow is no whiter for being washed.
Anger is a bad counselor.
