That which hussies spares, Cats eat.
Choose an easy death for one who must be executed.
Nothing to be got without pains but poverty.
An animal that gives birth to a young one in the desert must suckle it in the desert.
A threatened man lives long, if he can get bread.
He who has a mind to beat a dog will easily find a stick.
The dry leaves do not rustle if no wind blows.
Bad actions lead to worse reactions.
Pray indeed, but get to work.
