Forewarned, forearmed; to be prepared is half the victory.

He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.

A closed mouth catches no flies.

It is one thing to praise discipline, and another to submit to it.

Truth will rise above falsehood as oil above water.

Those who'll play with cats must expect to be scratched.

God bears with the wicked, but not forever.

A proverb is a short sentence based on long experience.

Tis the only comfort of the miserable to have partners in their woes.
