Everyone's companion is no one's friend.
We are no more than candles burning in the wind.
Want all, loose all.
Every sheep will be hanged from its own legs.
Do not all you can; spend not all you have; believe not all you hear; and tell not all you know.
A frog in a well-shaft seeing the sky.
A wee bush is better than nae bield.
The palace leads to fame, the market to fortune, and loneliness to wisdom.
No strength within, no respect without.
