Bricks and mortar make a house, but the laughter of children makes a home.
A lie travels farther than the truth.
Even the longest day has its end.
Praise youth and it will prosper.
May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty.
Everyone is wise until he speaks.
You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.
A hair on the head is worth two on the brush.
A kind word never broke anyone's mouth.
A light heart lives long.
Better be quarrelling than lonesome.
A silent mouth is sweet to hear.
Give away all you like, but keep your bills and your temper.
Don't break your shin on a stool that is not in your way.
Good luck beats early rising.
True strength lies in gentleness.
It's no use carrying an umbrella if your shoes are leaking.
If you dig a grave for others, you might fall into it yourself.
If you get a reputation as an early riser, you can sleep till noon.
Praise the young and they will flourish.
The believer is happy, the doubter is wise.
A turkey never voted for an early Christmas.
A diplomat must always think twice before he says nothing.
A dog owns nothing, yet is seldom dissatisfied.
