A secret foe gives a sudden blow.
He'll tell't to nae mair then he meets.
The heavier the purse, the lighter the heart.
That brings water to the mill.
Better a little fire to warm us than a big one to burn us.
Hunger is not your aunt.
It takes a year to make a friend, but you can lose one in an hour.
A friend you get for nothing; an enemy must be bought.
Envy is a weight not placed by its bearer.
