Young soldiers, old beggars.
Young drinkers, old beggars.
Young angel, old devil.
You can't direct the wind, but you can adjust your sails.
You cannot make a sieve of an ass's tail.
You cannot hang a man twice.
You are still a slave if only your limbs are free.
Yorkshire born and Yorkshire bred, strong in the arm and weak in the head.
Write on one of the devil's horns, "Good angel," and many will believe it.
