You don't get anywhere if you run in your thoughts.
You can't trust that a job will be done properly unless you do it yourself.
You can disguise wealth but you can't hide poverty.
Work doesn't scare him, but he could lay down near it and sleep.
With a walking-stick you reach many lands; you reach many more with words.
Wise in the morning is wiser in the evening.
Wet your finger in tar and soon it is all over you.
Water runs a whole mile downstream easier than an inch upstream.
Water is the oldest medicine.
