Never kiss an opportunity with a dirty mouth.
A cobbler formed the shape of shoes on a wooden foot shaped last. If it lasted long he was happy.

Keep five yards from a carriage, ten yards from a horse, and a hundred yards from an elephant; but the distance one should keep from a wicked man cannot be measured.
Force not favours on the unwilling.
He who won't be advised, can't be helped.
Truth has a scratched face.
Only a fool asks, "What do you want with my wife?"
God bless him who pays visits -- short visits.
