Who does too much, often does little.
Where the sea goes let the sands go.
He thinks to catch shell-fish in the trees.
If folly were a pain, there would be groaning in every house.
A curse turns against the one who uttered it.
A wheel not greased will creak.
To be lucky you need a little wit.
There is no winter without snow, no spring without sunshine, and no happiness without companions.
There is no getting blood from a turnip.
