Little by little, the camel goes into the couscous.
A wise fox will never rob his neighbours hen roost.
Courtesy that is all on one side cannot last long.
The firm tree does not fear the storm.
Your windmill dwindles into a nutcrack.
Ken when to spend and when to spare, and ye needna be busy, and ye'll ne'er be bare.
A day of hunger is not starvation.
He who punishes one chastises a hundred.
A woman's stomach does not grow if she is not pregnant.
