Few are like father, no one is like mother.
He dotes on his midden and thinks it the moon.
Order the lazybones a task and let him give you advice.
Ye're like the miller's dog--ye lick your lips ere the pock be opened.
It is easier to watch over one hundred fleas than one young girl.
Choose the neighbor before the house.
Many Aunts, many Eames, many kin, and few friends.
Friends become foes, and foes are reconciled.
You cannot build a house for last year's summer.
