If you cannot take things by the head, then take them by the tail.
Too far east is west.
It is a beggar's pride that he is not a thief.
It is not spring until you can plant your foot upon twelve daisies.
Where there's a will to condemn there is also evidence.
Like a thunderstroke from a clear sky.
Children should be seen and not heard.
Fair words break no bones.
Give and take is fair play.
