A wise man learns at the fool's expense.
Bad news is the first to come.
If bad luck is asleep you must not awaken it.
A load of March dust is worth a ducat.
It's difficult to draw pure water from a dirty well.
Thrift's gude revenue.
Even honors are punishments.
Of bad debtors you make take spoilt herrings.
Well-regulated charity begins with one's self.
