You shouldn't saw off the branch you're sitting on.
Don't fire until you see the white of his eye.
An unsolicited guest is worse than a Tatar.
To learn what is good, a thousand days are not sufficient; to learn what is evil, an hour is too long.
A thriftless woman burns the entire candle looking for a match.
If you can command yourself, you can command the world.
He that is not with me is against me.
To have no wants, is money.
It is not the hen which cackles most that lays most eggs.
