As we didn't say a word, he thought he could do anything he liked.
The heron blames the water because he cannot swim.
If you are travelling in the blind man's country close one eye.
Give and take is fair play.
That which we really require not is dear at a farthing.
The horseshoe that clatters wants a nail.
Man's greatest battles are the ones he fights within himself.
Before you mount, look to the girth.
With hard work, you can get fire out of a stone.
